Appellate Court reinstates Monmouth corrections officer
 

Issue Detail:

 
In a decision released July 16, 2009, the Appellate Division of the New Jersey Superior Court reversed Monmouth County's firing of corrections officer Michael Brown. The county had terminated Brown, who had worked there for 17 years, after a July 2004 random drug test allegedly disclosed that he tested positive for marijuana. According to the appellate court, "the County's entire case was based upon incompetent, inadmissible evidence" and that "the testimony and the documentary evidence are so substantially lacking in reliability that they cannot support the County's case against" Brown. Monmouth County taxpayers may want to submit Open Public Records Act requests to determine how much tax money was wasted in this debacle.
