Michael Pitt's wrongful termination lawsuit on behalf of former Wayne County employee Taylor Segue was front and center in a recent Detroit Free Press article detailing the ongoing battle involving former Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano and target at former development chief Turkia Mullin. In the article, the Free Press discussed Pitt's arguing that the way Mullin's severance was engineered was proof of her "insatiable greed." "Throughout her time with Wayne County, Mullin took advantage of her position as the county's chief development officer to work inside deals to get her more and more compensation," Pitt wrote in court pleadings this week.

Pitt wants Wayne County Circuit Judge John Murphy to compel Mullin and Elder to answer questions about the severance. Read the entire Free Press story here
