A St. Cloud law firm is in turmoil after a round of firings that began with its leader going after employees he believed were supporters of former President Donald Trump, according to a lawsuit filed in Stearns County District Court.

In the wake of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, when Trump supporters violently stormed the building to prevent congressional certification of Joe Biden's election as president, the suit alleges that Wesley Scott sought to fire employees he believed had made pro-Trump posts on social media.

Scott, president of the Kain & Scott law firm, terminated two employees - and then fired three of his law partners after they told him his actions were violating Minnesota law, according to the legal complaint.
