Court of Appeals Dismisses Case Against City

Sep 7, 2011

The Kentucky Court of Appeals upheld a lower court’s ruling against Bowling Green Police Department Sgt. Shawn Helbig in his whistle-blower lawsuit against the city. A three-judge panel of state appeals court judges unanimously affirmed the Warren Circuit Court ruling dismissing Helbig’s complaint that he was demoted from the rank of BGPD captain after raising concerns about the city’s overtime policy.
