“A registered nurse is suing a Norman hospital for $1.2 million after being fired over a Facebook post calling for the hanging of a Black murder suspect.
Kevin Murnan, 41, had worked at Norman Regional Hospital for 19 years.
He was fired Aug. 27 after commenting on Facebook about the fatal shooting of a 5-year-old boy.
“Get a big tall tree and a short piece of rope!” he wrote.
Attorneys for the hospital are asking Cleveland County District Judge Thad Balkman to dismiss the lawsuit.
