Legal aid lawyer Elizabeth Boyle says she was fired from Gulfcoast Legal Services because she refused to drop a case involving a quadriplegic who needs to find long-term care, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports. Boyle had also filed an age discrimination complaint against the nonprofit’s new executive director, who Boyle says wrongly ousted volunteers, many of whom were retired.
