A Uniontown woman claims in a federal lawsuit filed Thursday that Fayette County and its court officials violated her civil rights when they fired her from her job as a magistrate's secretary on Oct. 18.

Angela Shultz says in the lawsuit that county officials claimed that her boyfriend, a Masontown police officer, had stolen guns and that she knew about it. Her boyfriend hasn't been charged, and she didn't have reason to believe the guns were stolen, she says.

Shultz is suing the county, Fayette County Common Pleas Court Administrator Karen Kuhn and Deputy Court Administrator Tammy Lambie. A county commissioner couldn't be reached for comment.
