Motion filed to throw out Alomari termination lawsuit
by John Rossomando
Attorney David Yerushalmi and his American Freedom Law Center (AFLC) have filed a motion to dismiss a wrongful termination lawsuit against several national security experts. The suit was filed by Omar Alomari, a multicultural relations officer, claiming that the experts caused the Ohio Homeland Security (OHS), to fire him from his position as liaison to the Ohio Muslim community.
The defendants in Alomari's suit include Todd Sheets, Stephen Coughlin, John Guandolo and Patrick Poole who are experts on the Muslim Brotherhood and counterterrorism.
Alomari brought this civil lawsuit against these four individuals because they identified him as a "terrorist sympathizer" at a counterterrorist training course held at the Columbus Police Academy from April 13-15, 2010. This incident occurred after a picture surfaced of him posing with the OHS director and the head of the Council on American Islamic Relations' Ohio chapter on the group's website.
