9 terminated CNMI firefighters sue DFEMS

THE nine firefighters who were terminated for refusing to take Covid-19 vaccination have sued the Department of Fire and Emergency Medical Services and its commissioner, Dennis Mendiola, in his official capacity in Superior Court.

The lawsuit filed on Wednesday asked the court to issue an order declaring that the terminations of the nine firefighters were invalid and unlawful, and to set the terminations aside.

The plaintiffs are alleging violations of their constitutional rights to privacy, due process, deprivation of rights and property, and violations of equal protection of the laws.

Represented by attorney Jeffrey Horey, the plaintiffs want the court to issue an injunctive relief, reinstating them as firefighters, with back pay and cost of the suit.
