Former Iowa County Worker Loses Lawsuit Appeal

MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) — A former Cerro Gordo County employee has lost an appeal of the dismissal of her lawsuit alleging wrongful prosecution.

A three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals made no comment Monday in upholding the decision of a U.S. magistrate judge.

Last June Judge Leonard Strand granted a county request to dismiss the lawsuit brought by Debra Perzynski. She said she was wrongly prosecuted on allegations that she tampered with timecards. Officials alleged she had repeatedly altered her timecards, resulting in $1,600 in overpayments. A judge dismissed the charge after ruling there was no proof she received compensation for time she did not work.

Strand had ruled that there was probable cause to charge Perzynski in 2010, even though the case was later dismissed for lack of evidence.
