Buckley Bala Wilson Mew LLP Files Lawsuit Against the City of Decatur on Behalf of a 20-Year Firefighter

Ed Buckley and Andrew Tate filed a new lawsuit against the City of Decatur on behalf of our client, a 20-year Decatur firefighter, after the City stripped her of 90% of her pension.

Lt. Bridgit Christensen suffered a severe spinal injury when responding to a call in her firetruck. After her doctor declared her permanently disabled, she was eligible to retire with her disability pension.
