Casco hit with human-rights complaint

CASCO - The town has been served notice of a complaint from the Maine Human Rights Commission, Town Manager Dave Morton informed the Casco Board of Selectmen on Tuesday.

Board members asked what steps have been taken so far.

Morton said his first task was to contact the town’s law firm, Jensen Baird Gardner and Henry. He spoke with an attorney at that firm to get advice about the incident and how to proceed with the complaint against the town. His conversation took place with the Attorney Patricia Dunn.

The town’s insurance company will provide the legal services needed to represent the town, Morton said.

“This is my first time involved with one of these,” he said.

Although the selectmen pressed Morton for more information, he said it was best to withhold details since litigation is pending.

“I can’t even share with the board the specifics,” he said.
