Florio Kenny Raval, LLP Successfully Defends Public Officials & Employees in Federal Retaliation Lawsuit

Florio Kenny Raval, LLP was successful in obtaining Summary Judgment dismissing a Complaint against numerous public officials and municipal employees in the Federal District Court of New Jersey.

Christopher K. Harriott, Esq., a partner in the Firm, defended the individuals against allegations that they had retaliated against a former employee of the municipality in violation of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and New Jersey’s Conscientious Employee Protection Act.  

Mr. Harriott successfully argued that the Plaintiff had failed to establish any genuine issues of material fact suggesting that his political affiliation was a motivating factor in his job reassignment or that he had a reasonable belief that the municipality had violated a law, rule, or regulation.

As such, the District Court dismissed the Complaint with prejudice as to all defendants.
