There are new developments in former police chief Joel Fitzgerald's case against the city of Fort Worth.

The city's appeal has been denied, which means Fitzgerald will get his day in court.

He accused the city of corruption after he was fired in May of 2019.

His attorney said the case will likely go to trial in the spring.

He said Fitzgerald will seek damages from the city, including the possibility of reinstatement.
