Robert Wigington, the former president and CEO of the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority, has added two new defendants and allegations of defamation, the Nashville Post reports. Wigington originally sued MNAA with allegations that his firing last year violated the Family Medical Leave Act and the Tennessee Disability Act. The new complaint adds MNAA Board of Commissioners Chair Bobby Joslin and Vice Chair A. Dexter Samuels as defendants. It also includes new language claiming defamation, citing Wigington’s “for cause” firing and “releasing false and defamatory information to justify its decision.”
