A jury trial for a lawsuit filed by two former Denton Municipal Electric employees has entered its second week. 

Michael Grim and Jim Maynard filed the lawsuit in 2017, claiming that the city violated whistleblower protections and they were wrongfully terminated. A Dallas district judge ordered mediation, but the two men and the city did not settle. 

A jury trial began Jan. 20 and the proceedings are expected to last through the week, and possibly into a third week. 

More information about the case can be found on the Dallas District Clerk's website at dallascounty.org.
