A fifth person has joined a lawsuit by local law enforcement officers against the Texas Department of Public Safety alleging retaliation for reporting illegal activities by their supervisor.

An amended complaint was filed Friday in the federal Eastern District of Texas — Lufkin Division court that included new details about the alleged wrongdoing, as well as including Justin Sikes as a new complainant alongside the original complainants, Rodney Mahan, John H. Henley III, Joel Barton Jr. and John Riggins.
