Gov. Bentley Looks to Dismiss Lawsuit Filed by Spencer Collier

bentley1112.jpgAlabama Gov. Robert Bentley is looking to dismiss a lawsuit filed by former law enforcement secretary Spencer Collier.

Bentley’s attorneys said in a motion filed Monday that claims Collier makes in his complaint are vague and should be dismissed or clarified.

Bentley fired Collier in March and said an internal review found possible misuse of state funds within the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.

Soon after, Collier accused Bentley of having an affair with former top female staffer Rebekah Caldwell Mason and interfering with state law enforcement investigations.

Bentley admitted that he made inappropriate remarks but denied having an affair or interfering with investigations.

Collier sued Bentley, Mason the current Alabama Law Enforcement Agency director and others for defamation and wrongful termination and more.
