Woman files $1 million lawsuit against Bonneville County

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) - A southeast Idaho woman has filed a discrimination lawsuit against Bonneville County.

The Post Register reports that Kendalee Rydalch filed the lawsuit May 20 and is seeking $1 million.

The lawsuit says Rydalch was fired from her job as a juvenile probation officer with the county in February 2013.

The lawsuit says the firing came six days after she was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.

The lawsuit contends that a male supervisor in 2007 was found guilty of driving under the influence while on duty but kept his job.

Bonneville County Commissioner Roger Christensen says the county hasn't yet seen the lawsuit and declined to comment.
