The former police chief in the City of Electra has filed a lawsuit against the city for wrongful termination.

Former Police Chief Johnny Morris’s lawyer confirmed he has filed a suit against the City of Electra.  Morris was dismissed from his position in January 2014 after months of controversy.

Michael Hopkins was sworn in a week ago as the Deputy Police Chief.  This is a new position created by the city until a new chief can be hired.  Electra city officials said there is no timetable for when a new police chief will be hired.
