Fired Alamo police chief files suit against city Seeks between $100k and $200k

ALAMO -- Former Alamo Police Chief Baudelio Castillo filed a lawsuit last month against his former employer, the city of Alamo, approximately three weeks after the city commission majority voted to fire him.

Castillo had been under the gun since the previous December (the 17th ), less than 10 months after being hired (Feb. 26, 2018), when his name was placed on the city commission agenda for job termination. To stop the speeding train coming his way, the police chief got a temporary restraining order signed in state District Court (Judge Keno Vasquez), preventing the city commission from voting to fire him. The case was dismissed May 17, 2019 by state District Court Judge Marla Cuellar. Castillo was fired May 20th .

Castillo filed his new lawsuit June 12, citing the defendants as the city of Alamo, now-retired City Manager Luciano Ozuna, Mayor Diana Martinez, and Commissioners Robert De La Garza and Maria Del Pilar Garza.
