Anchorage appeals financial award to fired police officer

Anchorage television station KTVA reports attorneys for the municipality on Friday appealed the award made in federal court to former police Lt. Anthony Henry, who was fired four years ago.

The city has spent more than $1 million in legal fees on the case.

The municipality claimed Henry leaked confidential informants’ names and lied during an investigation into drug dealing and sexual assault within the Alaska National Guard.

U.S. District Judge Ralph Beistline (BEYEST-leyen) ruled for Henry and awarded him just less than $1.97 million.
