BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- The jury has begun to hear witnesses for the defense in Chris Miller's discrimination trial.
Miller is suing for $19 million in damages, claiming he was the victim of discrimination and retaliation at the Ithaca Police Department.
Police Chief Ed Vallely testified that he never knew that Miller was formerly a police officer in Virginia when he did his background check in 2000. He says when he found out about the omission in 2010, he considered it the final straw that led him to seek Miller's termination.
The case hasn't completely been handed over to the defense. Miller's attorney is expected to call more witnesses Friday, after they were unavailable Thursday.
