MASON CITY, Iowa – A woman suing the Cerro Gordo County treasurer is requesting a change of venue in her lawsuit.
Natasha Lewerke sued Cerro Gordo County and County Treasurer Patricia Wright in September, claiming she was inappropriately terminated from the treasurer’s office after she pointed out potential fraud on the part of Wright.
According to documents filed October 20, Lewerke is now asking that the court proceedings be moved out of Cerro Gordo County to help find an impartial jury. She suggests Marshall County or Webster County as possible substitutes.
A ruling on the request has not been issued.
