WASHINGTON (Legal Newsline) - A former section chief of the District of Columbia Attorney General's Office is reportedly suing the office after she expressed concerns over its proposed reorganization.

Nancy Johnson, the section chief of the legal services section of Attorney General Irvin Nathan's child support services division from November 2005 to September 2011, filed a lawsuit in the District of Columbia Superior Court Thursday, The Blog of Legal Times reported.

According to her complaint, Johnson said she was harassed and then fired in January after voicing her concerns over the reorganization, which would double the amount of employees she would oversee.

She argued that doing so would create conflicts of interests.

Johnson's complaint accuses the Attorney General's Office of violating the D.C. Whistleblower Protection Act and the D.C. Human Rights Act, the BLT reported.

Nathan's office has declined to comment on the suit.
