The federal lawsuit a former city employee filed against the city of Kingman last May moves forward this month as both sides conduct depositions.
Melissa Summerson, who worked in the city’s Human Resources and Risk Management Department, was fired in December 2012 because her husband is a member of the Desert Road Riders Motorcycle Club, a purported outlaw gang that law enforcement says supports the Hell’s Angels.
Human Resources Director Jackie Walker terminated Summerson’s employment because employees of the city’s law enforcement community – including police, dispatchers, court workers and attorneys – feared she would provide the Desert Road Riders with their confidential information, such as home addresses.
