The man, who was not named in the story, was asked to leave a petal shop on July 12 after a dispute with another employee.
The man told The Lad he was upset with the manager over a contract, and the shop’s owner refused to change the contract.
The manager said he was fired after the employee threatened to report him to the city.
The owner of Petals Flowers, the owners of the flower shop and a pet owner all filed a lawsuit against the city last month.
The city says it did not fire the employee, but the owner’s attorney said he is suing the city because the city did not properly investigate the situation.
The case is expected to go to trial this month.
