Lawsuit dismissal upheld in Waverly

Posted:

WAVERLY (KWWL)--A U.S. appeals court has upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit filed against the city of Waverly and a Waverly police officer.

Sisters Maxine Veatch and Chris Price say a retirement community had retaliated against them when they raised questions about their mother's care.

Veatch was arrested on suspicion of assault in September 2006. A staffer at the retirement center reported that she had seen Veatch push her mother into a wheelchair.

Veatch was acquitted at trial.

The lawsuit had said the city violated her rights.
