DHHR Lawyer Involved In Contract Flap Fired

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources lawyer involved in a contract bidding dispute has been fired.
 
Former general counsel Jennifer Taylor tells the Charleston Daily Mail that she was notified of her termination Monday.
 
The DHHR issued a brief statement Monday night confirming Taylor's termination.
 
Taylor, former DHHR Assistant Secretary John Law and Deputy Secretary Susan Perry were reassigned last July after they objected to the handling of a six-figure advertising contract. Law was fired in January.
 
Last week, Kanawha County prosecutor Mark Plants said an investigation arising from the dispute found signs of policy violations and bad judgment but no criminal intent. He said no criminal charges would be filed.
 
Whistleblower lawsuits filed against the DHHR by Taylor and Perry are pending.
