Complaint against state auditor thrown out

Posted November 17, 2010 6:49 p.m. EST

— A wrongful termination complaint against State Auditor Beth Wood has been tossed out.

Longtime state worker Alanda Vance claimed her dismissal last year was politically motivated. Vance is a Republican.

After a hearing this week, an administrative law judge ruled there was not enough evidence to support the claim.

Vance was let go in June 2009 after more than 22 years as a state employee.
