COLUMBUS (WCBI) – Movement Monday from both sides in the civil lawsuit filed by former Columbus Police Officer Canyon Boykin claiming he was illegally fired from his job.
Attorneys for the city are seeking summary judgement in the case saying Boykin has not provided any material facts to support his claim of being illegally terminated. Boykin’s counsel is continuing along the path of a trial in the case and wants a key witness for the city blocked from testifying. Boykin says the man the city says is an expert in police discipline matters does not have the qualifications to testify. Judge David Sanders has not indicated when he might rule on either motion. The motions filed are accompanied by a mountain of exhbits including excerpts from depositions from Mayor Robert Smith, Former Police Chief Tony Carleton and others involved in the case.
