Ex-South Lake Tahoe employee loses lawsuit

The South Lake Tahoe City Council on Aug. 5 agreed to a settlement with a former employee who had sued the city.

Stan Sherer was the Community Services director from January 2011 to July 2012. He was hired by then City Manager Tony O’Rourke and fired by City Manager Nancy Kerry.

In his lawsuit filed in February 2013 he alleged wrongful termination and age discrimination.

The settlement finds that city did not wrongfully terminate Sherer. The city will pay nothing to Sherer, including attorney’s fees.

The agreement says, “(the city) expressly waive(s) any claim for recovery of said cost, expenses and attorneys’ fees for Sherer in exchange for Sherer’s agreement to dismiss the complaint with prejudice.”

Sherer was not available for comment.

    Is Tony O’Dork trying to sue the city as well? Nancy K is a pretty feisty red head. City employee contract negotiations should be interesting. Let’s see if any Department heads stand up for their people or as usual just cover their own butt and let the employees get force fed a contract as usual.

    Actually the City should sue Stan for the damage he caused! In fact I bet that’s why he sued, and has now agreed to ‘settle’ for no compensation. Who settles for 0? Not even an admission of anything?

    I’m sure the deal is Stan got the City to agree not to sue him for his underhanded dealings.
