Officer Patrick Spoerry sues Arlington Heights Police Department - Says he was denied promotion because he refuses to suck up to the idiotic bosses
A police officer filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the Village of Arlington Heightsand fellow officers after he was denied a promotion last month.
The lawsuit filed in Cook County Circuit Court alleges the department’s promotion process that denied Officer Patrick Spoerry the position of sergeant was a “popularity contest” based on personal favoritism.
A list showed that Spoerry was eligible for a promotion to sergeant in April, but at the end of the month the Village of Arlington Heights said two investigators would be appointed sergeant, according to the lawsuit.
Spoerry had filed for an appeal, but on May 8, the director of human resources determined the process was valid, according to the lawsuit.
