a person that anjoys causing trouble has accused my husband of stealing a fire dept. radio out of another vol. firefighers truck,and giving it to him then taking it back. the fire chief has kicked my husband out of the fire dept. and the fire marshall has questioned my husband twice in regards to this supposed radio. all they have is hearsay, but they are keeping the case open for unknown reasons. this accusation has ruined my husband in our community, since he has been labeled as a thief. and all without any charges, or arrest, the fire dept. itself has rushed to judgment and personally convicted my husband without the benefit of a trial. my husband is NOT a thief, he never has been nor would he be. please tell us whether or not we have any legal recourse as to a possible slander. the person whoes truck the radio was stolen out of says that he does NOT belive that my husband stole that radio. but my husband has been kicked out of the fire dept. due to theft(with no conviction) please help!!!!!




It sounds like the fire department acted rashly when firing your husband and did not give procedural due process. Especially since the fire department is a public, government service, due process is that much more important. I suggest you consult with an attorney on filing a lawsuit. A general/civil practice attorney or an employment attorney will be helpful. You can find one on this website. Good luck
