Oral arg. – MSSC – 3/20/18

At 1:30 the MSSC will hear the case of Cindy W. King  v. Mississippi Military Department

King had been a civilian employee with the Mississippi Military Department’s environmental office when she was fired for some alleged self dealing involving a land transaction.  She tried to challenge her termination but the Miss. Employee Appeals Board determined that it lacked jurisdiction because King was a military employee and not a state employee.  King appealed arguing that she has  State retirement benefits, had had State health insurance, and State W-2 forms, etc.  The trial court found for the MMD on the grounds that  the Adjutant General has the statutory right to remove any of the employees of the Mississippi Military department at his discretion” pursuant to MCA § 33-3-11(a).
