TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – Topeka officials have found nothing to substantiate anonymous allegations of office bullying at city court.

City manager Jim Colson said Thursday that the city’s human resources and legal department interviewed 11 municipal court employees while investigating the claims.

The complaint was made in a letter sent to the city and media outlets. It centers on the municipal court, which is overseen by administrative judge Vic Miller. The letter didn’t allege Miller directly bullied anyone, but claimed he didn’t stop two employees from engaging in what the letter writer called hostile behavior.

City spokeswoman Suzie Gilbert says the people mentioned in the letter remain employed in the same capacities. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
