A retired Newport Beach police officer has filed the latest in a string of lawsuits initiated by various parties over the past few years alleging that the department had been riddled with corruption and favoritism.
Robert Morton, in his lawsuit filed Wednesday in Orange County Superior Court, alleged that department leaders retaliated against him after he reported illegal promotional practices and questioned lucrative side agreements for former Police Chief Bob McDonnell, among others, that allowed them to "double dip" into public coffers.
City Attorney Aaron Harp said Friday that he had not yet reviewed the complaint, but that based on the claim Morton filed with the city in October, he expects that the city will argue that the have no validity. <<<<LOL
Morton had filed an initial claim against the city in September, a step that must be taken before suing, but Harp said it was rejected as insufficient. <<<<Insufficient? LOL
On Oct. 22, Morton filed an amended claim, which Harp said the city denied on "procedural grounds" and on the grounds that, "We don't think these claims from any [of the former officers] have any merit to them."
Morton retired April 7, after having been bumped down to the Patrol Division from a more prestigious "coveted" assignment in 2009, he wrote in the October claim.
"As a result of my protests and the information I provided the city and NBPD as set forth herein, I was harassed, retaliated and discriminated against," he wrote in the claim. "I was denied fair promotional processes, which resulted in the loss of prestige and income associated therewith. The monetary effect is that I did not receive a captain's compensation during my employment and post-retirement."
A FAMILIAR STORY.

Another unrighteous judge, more corruption.

A judge sentenced former district judge Abel Limas to six years in prison for one count of racketeering. Limas was also ordered to forfeit $257,000 in property he owns and pay more than $6 million in restitution.
Limas was the focus of a corruption case at the Cameron County courthouse. He pleaded guilty more than two years ago and has testified in four trials related to the case.
The ex-judge confessed to accepting bribes for favorable court rulings. He also admitted to taking more than $250,000 from four attorneys.
In court today, his defense attorney said Limas was rehabilitated and did everything asked of him. Limas apologized for embarrassing the judiciary system and his family.
He left the courthouse without any comment about his sentence.
Former Cameron County district attorney Yolando De Leon called the outcome "a good recognition of the damage done to many, many people, many institutions."
But Limas' attorney Chip Lews said, "I think it's exorbitant. Given all the assistance Abel Limas gave the federal government, one would expect a lighter sentence."
The former judge will report to federal prison in a couple of months. Until then, he is a free man.
