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.
