Holland sues the City of Davis for over a Million Dollars

By Alisha Thompson
Nine months later former city manger Andy Holland has filed suit against the City of Davis.
The lawsuit was filed in Murray County District Court March 6 and the City of Davis was formally served on March 8. The City of Davis was the only entity named on the summons notice.
The petition states that on Dec. 17, 2019, the parties entered into a contract for the employment of the plaintiff. Holland’s annual salary was $133,875 to be paid on a bi-weekly basis. The contract was amended April 13, 2020. Holland’s annual salary changed to $153,875 to be paid on a bi-weekly basis.
In the petition, it is stated that Holland’s legal team believes he was terminated without cause. His legal team references the clause in his employment agreement Section 8 Severance Pay – in short states that Holland shall be paid in an amount equal to the full salary amount for seven years times the Plaintiff’s current salary at the time of termination ($1,077,125.)
The petition states that upon the failure to pay the severance pay when due Holland became subject to an additional amount of liquidated damages in the amount of $75,000.
The City of Davis had no comment.
The Davis News reached out to both legal teams representing the City of Davis and Mr. Holland before press time and received no comment.
