LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A hearing in the case of a former Lubbock police officer suing the city took place in a Lubbock courtroom Thursday. Two years ago, Kimberly Diaz was indicted for child abuse.
Those charges were later dropped, and she was reinstated to the police department. But two weeks later, she was fired. Her lawsuit says it was in retaliation for reporting that her estranged husband was stalking her. He is also a Lubbock police officer.
Thursday morning, Lubbock Police Chief Dale Holton, and City Attorney Don Vandiver attended a hearing in response to a request for a temporary injunction to get her job back. A visiting judge denied that request.
Trial is now scheduled for February 1st of next year.
