Detroit, Mayor Hit with Whistleblower Suit Verdict

Comments (0)

A Wayne County, Michigan jury returned a verdict in favor of two fired City of Detroit police officers earlier this week for a total of $6.5 million against the City of Detroit and Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.  The suit alleged that Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and the city unfairly punished two ex-cops probing reports of bad behavior.  This is referred to as a "whistelblower suit."

After a lengthy trial, the jurors came to a unanimous verdict in about three hours.  The jury felt that the two officers were punished for coming forward to report improper conduct by the the Mayor and other city officials.  The Defendants have indicated that they will appeal the verdict.
