Fired CEO Files Lawsuit Over Claims of ‘Illegal Firing’

Former MetroHealth CEO Akram Boutros vowed to pursue legal action after the system’s board fired him, and he wasted little time in backing up those words.

Boutros is suing MetroHealth, saying the Cleveland-based system acted improperly in terminating him Nov. 22. Boutros, who was slated to step down at the end of the year, said the board’s firing was retaliatory and that the board violated Ohio state law in hiring his successor, Airica Steed. He said in the suit that the “illegal firing” gives him claims against MetroHealth and its board.

In that court filing in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas, Boutros said he plans to file a separate lawsuit “to recover damages from this retaliation and other misconduct.”
