The Dunwoody City Council on Tuesday night, May 29, voted to fire City Attorney Brian Anderson for allegedly leaking confidential information from an executive session to the media.

The council voted 6-1 in favor of a separation agreement with Anderson. Councilman Denis Shortal voted against because he did not support giving Anderson additional salary. The council agreed that Anderson would resign and the city would pay him two months salary and benefits, about $29,000. Also in the agreement, Anderson will not seek any further damages from the city.
