Kingman worker appeals firing over marriage to biker

KINGMAN, Ariz. -- A former municipal employee married to a biker is appealing Kingman's decision to fire her because of concerns she might leak sensitive information.

Mellisa Summerson was fired in December as a human resources technician. She's seeking reinstatement with back pay and reimbursement for legal fees and other costs.

According to the Daily Miner, Summerson's termination notice said police officers, court personnel and other workers were afraid she would disclose personal information.

Summerson's husband belongs to the Desert Road Riders, a club that Kingman police said has links to the Hells Angels, while Summerson's response said it's a family club.

Summerson said the firing violated her rights and freedom to associate and that she'd never release sensitive information in city employees' files.

City Attorney Carl Cooper declined comment.
