Lawsuit accuses law firm boss of firing pro-Trump employees
ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Three former partners at a St. Cloud law firm are suing the firm’s president after he fired them and other employees he felt supported former President Donald Trump.
William Kain, Margaret Henehan and Kelsey Quarberg are alleging wrongful termination. The three were partners at the Kain and Scott law firm.
They allege the president, Wesley Scott, was upset over the U.S. Capitol riot on Jan. 6 and told the firm’s operations manger to fire two employees he considered racist because they supported Trump on social media.
When the manager refused he fired her and another employee. Scott then fired the partners after they told him it’s illegal to fire someone for their political beliefs.
