Two former code enforcement employees claim in a federal lawsuit filed Monday that Penn Hills and municipal Manager Mohammed Rayan violated their civil rights by firing them in January based on a new interpretation of the municipality's residency requirement.

Mary Lou Flinn, 62, and Joseph A. Probo, 58, claim in the lawsuit that their supervisors knew for years that they rent living spaces in Penn Hills while mainly living with family members in Monroeville.

The municipality unilaterally changed its interpretation of the residency requirement several times since 2009 and ignored an arbitrator's ruling in their favor when it fired them, the lawsuit says.

Rayan declined comment.
