Former Paducah officer appealing ruling on firing

A former Paducah police officer isn’t giving up on getting his job back, requesting an appeal of a judge’s recent ruling regarding his termination. 

The Paducah City Board of Commissioners fired Michael Redmon last year, saying he used excessive force by choking a man.

Redmon’s attorney, Jeremy Ian Smith, appealed that ruling to the McCracken County Circuit Court. Last week, Judge Tim Kaltenbach upheld the board’s findings.

Smith has now filed another motion with the McCracken County Circuit Court requesting to appeal Kaltenbach’s ruling.
