Peraica sued by former chief of staff

Daily Southtown (David H. Montgomery) reports that Commissioner Tony Peraica's former chief of staff, Terrence G. Austin, is suing Peraica and a local hospital.
[Austin was] found comatose in his home and taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center on July 7, 2005.

Police found a hypodermic needle in Austin's home and charged him with possession of drug paraphernalia July 9, 2005. Two days later, Peraica placed Austin on an unpaid leave of absence from his $78,345-a-year job....

Austin claims his firing was based on the illegal release of his confidential hospital records.
