New Milford police lieutenant's age discrimination case to be tried in November.

On November 10, 2014, a New Milford police lieutenant who sued the Borough and Police Chief Frank Papapietro in 2012 for passing him over for a promotion to police captain, will be tried before Bergen County Superior Court Judge Robert L. Polifroni.  Lieutenant John F. Kiene, who was 50 when the suit was filed, claimed that he was passed over for promotion because of his age.

He is represented by the Law Offices of Edward J. Nolan of Hackensack.  Kiene's lawsuit and Judge Lisa Perez Friscia's May 9, 2014 decision denying the Borough's motion for summary judgment in the matter, are on-line here.
