Ex-officer sues Lee’s Summit, saying he was fired for religious beliefs

A former Lee’s Summit police officer, whose wife died at home after a month-long illness without seeing a doctor, has sued the city, claiming he was fired because of his religious beliefs. In a lawsuit filed last week in U.S. District Court, Caleb Horner says the police department refused his repeated requests to return to work after Misty Horner died Jan. 9, 2007.
