A former National Beef employee's wrongful-termination lawsuit against the company was dismissed last week for lack of evidence.

    District Judge Van Hampton ruled on May 21 that Garden City resident Natividad Fierro failed to show that National Beef had done anything wrong, National Beef attorney David Rebein told the Globe on Wednesday. Consequently, Hampton dismissed the case and awarded court costs to the company.

    "From National Beef's standpoint, it's a complete victory," Rebein said. "The company values its employees and tries to do things the correct way, and we're pleased that the court agreed with us."
    Fierro's attorney, Peter Antosh, was out of his office and did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
    National Beef fired Fierro on Dec. 20, 2006, on the grounds that he had left work without permission earlier that month.
