    Florida Town Fires Manager Married to Porn Star

    Florida Town Fires Manager Married to Porn Star - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com


    FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla. A South Florida town manager who married a porn star last year was fired at an emergency meeting after the mayor and council members learned about it.

    Fort Myers Beach town council voted 5-0 to fire Scott Janke "without cause" after Mayor Larry Kiker called the Tuesday night meeting.

    Kiker told the News-Press of Fort Myers he learned that afternoon that Janke's wife is an adult film star, and the elected officials took the action a few hours later.

    Wow is all I can say so I guess the fine folks of Fort Meyers are all now saved from this please if I was the guy I would instruct my Legal Team to start doing background checks on the Mayor and the Council also i would be filling a rather large lawsuit against the City of Fort Myers.

    Yeah, I'd have to say he has grounds to sue for wrongful termination.

    The legality of the termination of up to the applicable laws, but the stupidity of it is universal. Hopefully the morons who made the choice will face some kind of backlash for their actions.

    They shouldn't have terminated him for that. I would take them to court on that one for sure for wrongful termination.

    He won't if he serves at the pleasure of the council. In that case they could fire him for anything.

    In their place, I'd assume that the manager was unbalanced and look for the first chance to fire him for cause.

    Whether or not Scott Janke has a case for a law suit is completely dependent on the verbiage in his contract with the city. In his contract it clearly states that he works at the pleasure of the City Council and Mayor. He can file a suit but it will go no place. I've seen it before, the Contracts are always written in favor of the municipality to protect the Citizens from the cost of suits, and that cost is not in Lawyers fees that's what City Attorney's are for. Mr. Janke needs to move on and when he applies for a job someplace they don't know him he needs to keep hid mouth shut about his wife and if ask tell the truth they gave no reason for the termination and if the old City tells the new one it's because his wife is a porn star he then has grounds for a suit he could win.

    Ahh but here is the whole thing the town fired him for the fact he is married to a Porn Star so yes their is grounds for a Law Suit. Even the Mayor has sttaed that he was doing a good job and the only reason he was fired was because who he was married to.

    I don't care what the contract says you can't fire someone over who he or she ismarried to it's clear violation of his personal rights.

    Is that your professional opinion?

    When did the occupation of one's spouse become a protected class?
