Fourteen months after former City Manager Frank Parker filed his wrongful-firing suit against all five Statesboro City Council members and the mayor, a judge has scheduled a hearing over the defendants’ motions to have the case decided short of a trial. By a 3-2 vote on June 24, 2014, City Council fired Parker over remarks he made at a meeting of city staff members five days earlier. Local attorney Daniel B. Snipes then filed suit on Parker’s behalf in Bulloch County Superior Court on Sept. 3, 2014.
