LYNCHBURG, Va. (WDBJ) - Former Lynchburg fire captain and newly-elected City Council member Martin Misjuns has added alleged wrongful termination to his lawsuit against the City of Lynchburg, the Lynchburg Fire Department and current and former city officials.

Misjuns sued all parties in 2021, before he was elected to council, for alleged breach of contract and violation of constitutional rights after a post on his public figure Facebook page that some community members called transphobic.

Misjuns is seeking back pay with interest along with other relief. The case is expected to go to court in April.
