A Louisville Metro Police lieutenant is trying to block the department from firing him, saying he is the victim of retaliation for his involvement in a whistleblower lawsuit.

Lt. Richard Pearson joined in a lawsuit in April filed by Detective Barron Morgan, who said he was punished for trying to assist a Spencer County woman who claimed she was wrongfully convicted of homicide.

Morgan alleged he was demoted last August to a patrol officer on the graveyard shift for telling the Kentucky Innocence Project that another suspect had confessed to the homicide for which Susan King was serving 10 years in prison.
