Case Summary

A-15-0322, Douglas County, Nebraska (Appellant) v. Daniel Archie and Douglas County Civil Service Commission

Douglas County, District Court Judge Marlon A. Polk

Attorney for Appellant: Meghan M. Bothe, Timothy K. Dolan (County Attorney's Office)

Attorney for Appellee (Daniel Archie): Rick G. Wage (Norby & Wade LLP)

Attorney for Appellee (Civil Service Commission): Robert J. Hamer

Administrative Action: Employee termination

Action Taken by Trial Court: Douglas County terminated Archie's employment for violations of the Civil Service Commission Employee Personnel Policy Manual. The Civil Service Commission reinstated Archie and the district court affirmed the Commission's ruling.

Assignments of Error on Appeal: Douglas County argues that (1) the district court's order reinstating Archie is arbitrary, capricious, and unsupported by sufficient, relevant evidence; (2) the district court erred in failing to find that the Commission's lack of express findings was erroneous; and (3) the district court erred in failing to find error in the Commission's consideration of evidence from outside the record.
