He filed the lawsuit against seven named parties, including Governor Bentley.  The governor said that Collier was fired due to quote “a possible misuse of funds.”

After Collier was terminated, he held a press conference and alleged that an affair took place between former political aide Rebekah Caldwell Mason and  Governor Bentley.

In all, the lawsuit has nine counts of wrongdoing from defendants raging from the Governor to Rebekah Mason to the new head of ALEA, Stan Stabler.
