Manney wasn't charged, but Chief Ed Flynn fired him for violating department pat-down policies. The city's police and fire commission upheld the firing.
A Milwaukee judge ruled the termination was proper, but Manney argued to the 1st District Court of Appeals that the department's pat-down policies are vague and his due process rights were violated. The court rejected his arguments Tuesday, saying the commission acted properly.
Manney's attorney didn't immediately reply to an email seeking comment.
