A former Lawrence police officer says he plans to sue the city over his firing after he was accused of fixing traffic tickets.

Michael Monroe was one of two officers the city alleged fixed traffic tickets in exchange for tickets to University of Kansas basketball games.

City Manager David Corliss has said the person whose traffic tickets were fixed is in federal prison related to a broader Kansas ticket scandal.

Police Chief Tarik Khatib fired Monroe in March, overruling a city employee grievance board's decision that Monroe should be reinstated with a demotion.

Corliss recently upheld Khatib's decision.

City officials declined to discuss Monroe's grievance.

The other officer, whose name has not been released, resigned in February.
