MONTGOMERY, AL (WTVM) -

The judge assigned to former Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) Secretary Spencer Collier’s wrongful termination lawsuit is taking himself off the case.

Collier is suing Alabama governor Robert Bentley over his termination earlier this year.

The lawsuit claims Collier was fired because the governor asked him to lie and he disobeyed.

Montgomery County Circuit Judge Johnny Hardwick issued an order Thursday asking the Circuit Clerk to reassign the case citing a conflict with one or more of the parties or their legal representatives.
