(Salt Lake City, UT) — A Salt Lake City firefighter demoted after alleging misconduct in the department is getting her rank back. Martha Ellis won an appeal yesterday to the city’s Civil Service Commission to restore her title of battalion chief after being demoted last year to captain. She’s also filed a whistleblower lawsuit claiming top brass retaliated against her for uncovering information revealing fraud and cover ups in the department.
