The Latest on Candice Miller’s $378,000 Judgment Win Against CitCo

Candice Miller

One of the issues haunting City Hall is the huge payment ordered by the Supreme Court to former City Administrator Candice Miller.  As you know, the court awarded Miller a package of some four hundred thousand dollars after she sued the council for wrongful termination. Soon after the court’s decision, Miller proceeded to crow foot the assets of the City Hall and the Council headed to court for a stay of execution.  Miller sought payment of two hundred thousand dollars in six different installments to stop the crow footing.  The matter remains under appeal by City Hall.  Today, Belize City Mayor Bernard Wagner provided an update on the matter.

“Sir has the council adhered to the payment plan that Candice Miller has asked through her attorney?”

“I can’t comment on that matter. We are on gag order with that matter. But we are working out, we have to ensure that we respect the ruling of the court and show goodwill.”

“Was it good will when one of your councilors posted without prejudice letter on his Facebook page with the request from her attorney? I saw it on one of your councilors’ Facebook page, Albert Vaughn. “

 

Bernard Wagner

“I can’t control everything that my councilors do on their private page.”

 

Reporter

“You are starting to sound like Dean Barrow now and the Alibabas.”

 

Bernard Wagner

“No, but certainly spoke to him about it and since then we have remedied that situation.”

 

 

Hipolito Novelo 

“An appeal is being pursued still?”

 

Bernard Wagner

“Yes it is being appealed. We have already placed our appeal there at the court, yes.”

 

Hipolito Novelo

“And the attorney for that specific case?”

 

Bernard Wagner

“We have the law firm of Courtney and Coye working along with Attorney Sylvestre and the Godfrey Group.”
