Alabama Judge recuses himself from Collier case

A judge in the wrongful termination lawsuit filed by former ALEA Secretary Spencer Collier has recused himself in the case.

Collier is suing 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 withdrawing from the case.

Hardwick said he was recusing himself due to a conflict with one or more of the parties or their legal representatives.
