Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano will have to answer questions in a lawsuit filed by a former employee.

The County tells Local 4 James Wallace, a graphic artist who was let go last year, claims he was fired for refusing to do political work on county time.

Wallace wants to question Ficano about the political work done by appointees and the reasons for his firing.

Lawyers for Ficano argue he was not directly involved in the firing and Wallace was let go because of cutbacks.
