Updated for reaction from the city's lawyer. A federal judge over-rules the jury's verdict and orders that City of Lubbock employee Martha Ellerbrook gets nothing from the city.
The fight between City Hall and city employee Martha Ellerbrook is not over. Last week the city filed a motion to throw out a mid-October jury verdict, or grant a new trial.
A current city employee, Martha Ellerbrook claims the City of Lubbock retaliated against her for helping her husband Terry in his own lawsuit against the city. After three days in trial, Martha has been awarded $243,000, and gets to keep her job.
