SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

WNEM.com has learned the Saginaw police officer who was in charge the day Milton Hall was shot and killed is suing the city.

The city manager's office says they have received a complaint from Anjanette Tuer, a.k.a. Anjanette Jill Wojciechowski, who was a sergeant at the time of the shooting and is no stranger to lawsuits herself. 

The city wouldn't make any further comment on the reason for the suit.

This is not the first time Tuer has been embroiled in controversy. In November, TV5 used the Freedom of Information Act to request Tuer's personnel records. Although the city left out several documents that it says relates to sensitive private information, our request yielded hundreds of pages of court documents in her file. 

Of the documents we were provided, we learned that Tuer has been named in at least two civil lawsuits . She was also the subject of a third case.  Of those cases, the city lost one, is still waiting to hear on another and in the third case, the jury reached a split verdict. Overall, the litigation has cost the city $1.75 million in judgments.
