    Jurors award detective $700,000 including punitive damages from his city that fired him

    Jurors awarded 43-year-old Jay Mehring more than $700,000 including punitive damages.

    Mehring sued the City Of Spokane for what he called a civil rights violation.

    Mehring says Spokane Police Chief Ann Kirkpatrick had no right to fire him in 2007 following allegations he threatened to kill his wife during a messy divorce.

    In October of 2008 a jury acquitted him on those claims.

    Oh, well. Looks like a city just found out the hard way you can't trample on your employees without consequence.
