A U.S. appeals court has upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit filed against the city of Waverly and a Waverly police officer.
According to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, two sisters, Maxine Veatch and Chris Price, say the Bartels Lutheran Retirement Community had retaliated against them when they raised questions about their mother's care.
Veatch had been arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor assault in September 2006. A Bartels staffer reported that she'd seen Veatch push her mother into a wheelchair. Veatch says her mother had collapsed and that she caught her mother before she hit the floor.
