No decision so far on lawsuit

  • Nov. 2, 2009 12:00 p.m.

Eunice Ludlow, Queen Charlottes’s terminated chief administrative officer, has not yet decided if she will sue.”(My lawyer) will be starting a correspondence with the mayor next week and as a result of that correspondence a decision will be made,” Ms Ludlow said Friday. She said she’d rather try to straighten a few things out instead of proceeding directly to legal action. And she said the target of her suit would not be the village.”I would not be suing the village anyway, I would be suing the mayor and council,” Ms Ludlow said, “if the mayor could be proven to have acted in malice, her defence would not be covered by the village’s insurance.”Ms Ludlow said that she personally hopes it gets sorted out without having to launch legal action.Her employment with the village was terminated without cause by council on October 20. She had served as chief administrative officer since last November.
