The fight is on to determine what evidence will be admissible in Former Osceola County Deputy Dan Minten’s case against Osceola County Sheriff Doug Weber. A judge has already granted a summary judgment in Minten’s favor. That means the trial will only decide what damages the sheriff will have to pay.
Minten claims he was wrongly fired after he offered to testify in a case against the sheriff. He made this offer while he was on duty, during a traffic stop.
Weber’s attorney’s have asked that the outcome of the unemployment hearing not be admitted. Meanwhile Minten’s attorneys want to keep references to other workplace disciplinary violations and complaints out of the trial.
