Brian Matise and Nelson Boyle at Burg Simpson are representing the engineers, fire investigators, and firefighters from the West Metro Fire District as part of a class action lawsuit. The complaint claims the department mishandled roughly $1.8 million in a retiree health account.

Attorney Brian Matise said, “The brave men and women of the West Metro Fire District risked their lives every day to protect the people who needed them. And they fully expected the insurance they paid for to be there to protect them and their families when they needed it.”

Tim O’Hayre, a former West Metro firefighter and one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit filed in Jefferson County said, “We scraped people up off the street. I have things that haunt me and I expected this to be here. What they are doing is outrageous.”
