A Las Vegas officer filed a federal lawsuit against the police union, alleging that fees have been improperly withheld from her paycheck after she requested to revoke her membership.
A Las Vegas officer filed a federal lawsuit this week against the police union, alleging that a 20-day period for officers to revoke their membership is overly restrictive and violates her First Amendment rights.
The complaint was filed Monday and names the Metropolitan Police Department and the Las Vegas Police Protective Association as defendants, court documents show. It was filed on behalf of Melodie DePierro, a "decorated veteran police officer" who has worked for Metro since 2006, the complaint said.
