City of Electra Settles Lawsuit With Former Police Chief

 The City of Electra has settled a Wrongful Termination lawsuit filed by former Police Chief Johnny Morris. 

Electra officials released a statement on Monday saying the amount approved by the City Commission was $120,000. 

The settlement states that Electra is not admitting guilt of any wrong doing and the lawsuit has been dismissed. 

Mayor Curtis Warner said, "The City Commission held the opinion that a court case would re-expose emotions and halt the process of coming together as a city. Further, the City Commission is pleased with the progress achieved by the new command staff of Chief Michael Hopkins and Deputy Chief Michael Dozier in re-establishing the police department".

As part of the settlement agreement Morris agrees to not seek, apply for, or accept any position or appointment with the City of Electra.

Morris was fired as Police Chief in January of 2014.
