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.
