Federal Judge Hearing Age Discrimination Lawsuit Involving Morgan Co. Sheriff

FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) - A federal judge is hearing an age discrimination lawsuit this week in Florence involving a local sheriff.

The suit was brought against Sheriff Ana Franklin and Morgan County by the former head of the county's drug task force agency.

Doug Key filed suit against Sheriff Franklin and the county after he lost his job days after Franklin took office.

She testified she demoted Key from Lieutenant back to Sergeant and took away his post because she thought he lacked the ability to run the task force.
