Top Cops Reverse Course In Retaliation Claim Against Transfers

From Dan Tepfer, CT Post:

Three city police captains who are challenging in court the selection of Rebeca Garcia as assistant police chief dropped their claim Monday that they are being retaliated against.

The captains’ lawyer, Thomas Bucci, said he withdrew his request for a temporary injunction blocking the transfer of his clients to put the focus back on their original lawsuit.

“We want to keep this case on the issue of the assistant chief selection and not jeopardize it with additional claims,” Bucci said.

Captains Brian Fitzgerald, Roderick Porter and Steven Lougal are suing the city in Superior Court challenging Garcia’s qualifications to be assistant chief. She was later promoted to acting chief.

… “I’m not surprised,” said Deputy City Attorney John Bohannon Jr. of the injunction withdrawal. “Their claims were baseless.”
