Judge allows former town manager's appealSeptember 18,2013The Associated Press
ST. JOHNSBURY - A judge has cleared the way for a former St. Johnsbury town manager to take his bid to get his job back before the Vermont Supreme Court.
Judge Mary Miles Teachout's ruling Monday allows Ralph Nelson to seek an appeal of Teachout's decisions on some aspects of the lawsuit.
Nelson's lawyer has argued that the issues involved in Nelson's lawsuit are relevant to towns and town managers statewide.
At issue is Teachout's prior ruling that Nelson was an "at will" employee and eligible to be fired at any time for any reason. In doing so, Teachout interpreted the Vermont statute governing town managers, for which there was no prior case law.
Nelson was town manager for 19 months before being fired in April 2012.MORE IN This Just InThink of Saturdayís event as a classier and much more fun version of Black Friday.
