The law firm representing fired city employee Terri Velasquez made a glaring error in a federal civil rights lawsuit filed Monday against the city.
The firm included the El Paso County Board of County Commissioners in its complaint.
The complaint states that Velasquez, by and through her attorneys, “allege and assert claims against the City of Colorado Springs, by and through its governing entity, the Board of County Commissioners.”
The Gazette asked the law firm, Evergreen-based Frank and Finger, PC, about the error on Wednesday.
Attorney William Finger was out of the office, and no one from the law firm replied Wednesday.
Paralegal Elaine Gosnell responded via email Thursday morning.
“We are filing a corrected complaint today. Any error should not effect the lawsuit,” she wrote.
Um, Ms. Gosnell, actually, any error should not “affect” the lawsuit.
