’s attorney confirmed Thursday morning that his client will be suing the town of Montville and a number of others.
“We will be filing a notice of intent to sue with the Town clerk shortly. The jurisdiction decision is not yet made. There will likely be many defendants,” attorney Jacques J. Parenteau wrote in an email to Patch.
Parenteau said he is also seeking, under the Freedom of Information Act, “All documents that concern the termination and the investigation and the billing records for the Town’s law firm that conducted the investigation.”
Montville Mayor Ronald K. McDaniel Jr. confirmed Wednesday that he “sent a termination letter” to McNally and then declined further comment.
McNally, a town employee for 12 years had never been disciplined previously, Parenteau said. The lawyer called the firing politically motivated.
McNally has been on paid administrative leave for the past six months while the town allegedly completed an investigation that culminated in the firing.
