MINOT, North Dakota — The city of Minot is asking a federal judge to require a fired city employee to turn over mental health records since 1994 as part of an ongoing legal battle.

Former city attorney Colleen Auer says in a lawsuit she was fired illegally in retaliation for a discrimination complaint she had filed while employed by the city. She argues there is nothing in the law that would require her to give up the mental health records.

Auer was fired in May 2014 after only about a month on the job for alleged insubordination. She earlier filed grievances with the state Labor Department and the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Auer seeks reinstatement and money damages. The city says her claims are frivolous and the case should be dismissed.
