Judge Denies Lifetime Medical Benefits To Turkia Mullin

DETROIT (WWJ) – Turkia Mullin has been denied lifetime medical benefits from her former job as Metro Airport CEO.

Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Maria Oxholm ruled that Mullin doesn’t qualify for the benefits because she did not work for Wayne County for eight years reports WWJ Newsradio 950’s Beth Fisher.

Mullin had worked for the county for seven years, 11 months, and 26 days and her attorney, Ray Sterling, says the county’s practice was to provide health care benefits by rounding up an employee’s years of service.

He says they are reviewing their legal options.

Mullin was fired from the airport job in 2011 after it was learned that she was paid a $200,000 severance from her previous job with the county.

An arbitrator awarded her $712,000.
