St. Louis Sues Over Firefighters' Test

St. Louis, MO – St. Louis city is suing the company that administered a firefighters' promotions test this year.

The suit accuses the Michigan-based Blockett, Junior & Associates of breaching its contract with the city by letting firefighters get a portion of the test before it was taken.

Last month, Mayor Francis Slay said he would fire a battalion chief and three firefighters for cheating on the exam by stealing the test or trying to undermine the testing process.

The city wants the company to pay back the $100,000 it got for administering the test in March.
