Former city attorney files legal claim against Milpitas alleging he was fired out of retaliation

Posted By Administration, Thursday, December 10, 2015

Former Milpitas City Attorney Michael Ogaz announced through his attorney Tuesday that he plans to sue Milpitas for wrongfully terminating him in a retaliatory move for investigating complaints against the city manager.

In filing a California Tort Claim and receiving a "right to sue" letter from the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, Ogaz has begun the process for filing a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the city, according to his attorney Adam J. Zapala.

"Mr. Ogaz will be seeking a finding that he was unlawfully terminated, along with all compensatory and other damages that are available under the various legal theories we are pursuing," Zapala said.
