Judge Franco files discrimination complaint over residency inquiry

Kansas City Municipal Judge Elena Franco has filed a discrimination complaint against the city, City Manager Troy Schulte and Court Administrator John Franklin. Franco alleges that a city investigation last year into her residency was in fact retaliation for her opposition to a prosecutor’s office restructuring, and that since she returned to court after a suspension last summer, the retaliation has continued.
