Edgerly was accused of nepotism and intervening in a police investigation when she was fired from her City Hall job last summer.

In her lawsuit, according to city sources, /*Edgerly*/ said she was ordered by Mayor Ron Dellums' wife, Cynthia, to create space for a public-private partnership office in the city. Edgerly also said she was ordered by the mayor's office to fire a number of city officials, including the city's finance director.

In the suit, Edgerly said she was fired out of retaliation because she refused to carry out those orders.

A Dellums aide said the mayor's office would not comment on the suit because officials have not yet seen it.
