There was a motion at the BOD meeting that said something to the effect "allow USPA to pay Larry Bagley $1000.00 for his attorney fees."
So why is USPA paying for Larry Bagley's attorney fees?
Ed Scott, the Executive Director, fired Larry Bagley, the Director of Competition, a few weeks ago.
The Executive Director has full authority to hire and fire people that work at headquarters. [GM Sec1-2.6 Administrative Staff] The BOD hires the Executive Director, and the BOD does not have authority to hire or fire staff at HQ.
So after the BOD was informed about LB being fired, some 'consultations' took place. One of those 'consultations' was LB talking to an attorney. Other 'consultations' were between ES & BOD members, specifically JS.
The end result of it all was that LB was 'rehired' and part of the agreement terms were that USPA pay for the attorney that he hired when he found out he was fired.
Those are the facts that I know about.
I don't know anything about the employment terms of LB with USPA, so I have no idea if ES had valid reasons or not to fire LB. In the meantime, 'the grumpy old man' that others like to call LB, continues on and will come to a DZ near you to yell at you personally.
