ROGERS, AR -- A federal judge has ruled in favor of a fired Rogers city treasurer. Mayor Greg Hines fired Jerry Hudlow back in May of last year, but Hudlow sued Hines and the city for wrongful termination, claiming they violated city ordinances for termination of appointed employees.

According to court documents, Jurors decided to award Hudlow $321,000, including costs for lost wages and benefits. Tuesday, a Judge also awarded Hudlow $84,697 in attorney fees. The City of Rogers is responsible for footing those bills.
