Another Lawsuit Filed In Rapid City Landfill Case

December 15, 2011, 11:46 AM

RAPID CITY, SD - A fired employee accused of helping swindle the Rapid City landfill has fired back with his own lawsuit.

Randall Meidinger says he followed city policy when he worked as a scalehouse attendant and was fired, criminally prosecuted and sued for damages based on false claims by the city. Meidinger wants a judge to dismiss the city's civil lawsuit against him and allow him to go after financial compensation.

Mayor Sam Kooiker and former landfill superintendent Jerry Wright declined comment.

A jury in May found Meidinger not guilty of any criminal wrongdoing. Criminal charges against others in the case were dropped. A 2009 civil lawsuit that the city filed against Meidinger, George and Clifford Fish and the defunct Fish garbage company remains active.
