The mayor of Villa Hills has filed a civil lawsuit on Wednesday against the city and its six council members.

Mike Martin could be removed from office after council accused him of nine instances of misconduct and neglect of his official duties. Some of those include instructing others to burn city documents, misuse of city property and improper retaliatory behavior.

Martin's attorney will ask for a 30-day extension at Friday morning's hearing. The city will file their response to the suit Thursday.
