A former Clendenin Police Officer was fired and denied his unemployment benefits, but Charles Burkhamer will get them after all. This week a judge reinstated his benefits.
Burkhamer claimed Mayor Bob Ore wrongfully fired him when he issued an arrest warrant for the mayor. Burkhamer originally sued and lost when Mayor Ore took steps to block his claim, but he later appealed and won.
Mayor Ore says he will likely appeal this decision.
In the meantime, Burkhamer is now proceeding with a wrongful termination suit.
