Woman fired from Arizona job over comment files claim

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A woman fired from a state job after saying menstrual cycles might be too problematic for women to serve in combat has filed an $800,000 claim against Arizona.

Terri Proud was fired in April 2012 from the administrative assistant position at the Department of Veterans Services.

She previously served one term as a state legislator and alleges her firing was politically motivated for her actions while in office.

The Arizona Daily Star reported Friday that Proud submitted the claim seeking damages related to her termination from the $40,000-a-year DVS job.

A claim is a precursor to a lawsuit.

The then-director of the department resigned after Proud's comments about women in combat was reported by the Star. He previously had been told by Gov. Jan Brewer not to hire Proud.
