I reported earlier this week that a former top mayoral aide’s wrongful termination suit against the city of San Diego had been tossed out of court by a judge. That was based on information from mayoral spokesman Fred Sainz.

I’ve since gotten a few calls clarifying that the case wasn’t totally thrown out. Apparently, the former employee, Rickie Reynolds, still has the opportunity to take a second crack at presenting the suit.

Essentially, the court found the first suit to be defective, but said Reynolds could amend it and try again.

I’ve put in a call to Reynolds’ attorney and will report back as soon as I can. My apologies for any confusion.

Update: I just spoke with Reynolds, and he referred questions to his attorney. However, he did say this: “This thing is not over.”
