Judge To Rule On Newark Police, Fire Layoff Lawsuit

JAMES FORD (wpix.com) | November 12, 2010

NEWARK, N.J. — The dispute over pending layoffs of nearly two hundred police officers and firefighters in Newark is coming down to the wire.

The city of 280,000 just had its bloodiest summer in twenty years, according to police crime statistics. Still, the city government insists that it must cut at least 160 police officers as part of an effort to plug an $83 million budget hole.

The administration’s plan also calls for at least 24 firefighters to be let go, as well as hundreds of sanitation workers and other city employees. Their layoff is scheduled to begin at close of business Friday.

But a judge’s decision may give all of those workers a reprieve. Friday afternoon, a judge will hear arguments from lawyers from Mayor Cory Booker’s administration explaining why the city feels the cuts are key to keeping the city fiscally afloat.
