A former hospital Executive Health Director files a suit against Monroe County and his former employers.

According to court papers, Todd Spring is suing the Monroe Community Hospital for damages.

Spring was fired in May 2013 after an external investigation said he mistreated a patient by depriving them of a wheelchair.

Spring's complaint in County Court says he was misrepresented during that investigation, and that his right to free speech was violated when he was barred from speaking out against those accusations.

He is suing for damages including legal malpractice, loss of wages, humiliation and lost career opportunities.

News10NBC will be following up with Monroe County and with the hospital for responses to those claims.
