Another lawsuit in Franklin Fire District 3
 

Issue Detail:

 
On March 24, 2014, Michael Reinbeck, who unsuccessfully ran for a Commissioner\'s seat in Franklin Fire District No. 3 on February 16, 2013, sued East Franklin Volunteer Fire Department, the District and Fire Chief Daniel J. Krushinski for improperly terminating him from the fire department. In his lawsuit, Reinbeck v. East Franklin Volunteer Fire Department, et al, Docket No. SOM-L0393-14 (on-line here), Reinbeck claimed that Krushinski and others \"began a campaign of retaliation against\" him after he \"raised numerous safety concerns\" and what he believed to be policy and legal infractions during his campaign. He claimed that Krushinski publicly stated that he \"would force Reinbeck\'s termination\" because of his comments. When he filed a formal complaint against Krushinski with Fire Department President Joseph Inzirillo, Reinbeck claimed that Krushinski retaliated against him by suspending him from his position of Fire Department Lieutenant for sixty days. His lawsuit also claimed that his appeal of the suspension to the Fire Department\'s Executive Board was ignored and resulted in further retaliation. He claimed that he was ultimately terminated from the Fire Department on March 26, 2013. His lawsuit seeks damages under the New Jersey Conscientious Employee Protection Act, also known as the Whistleblower Protection Act among other claims.
