Former ITD Director Back In Court

Fired Idaho Transportation Director Pam Lowe was back in court yesterday so that a judge can decide whether or not the state’s transportation director is an at-will employee who can be fired for any or no reason.

Meanwhile, the Idaho Transportation Department acknowledged that a controversial management contract that Lowe contends she was fired for trying to scale back has now swelled to $85 million.

Here's the latest from the Spokesman-Review.
