Police captain in Atlantic County files hostile work environment suit.

Update:  Judge James Savio entered an October 2, 2018 order that dismissed the complaint because a jury found, after a three day trial, “no cause of action against defendant Egg Harbor Township.”

On December 21, 2015, Egg Harbor Township (Atlantic County) Police Captain James David Druding filed a lawsuit (Druding v. Township of Egg Harbor, Docket No. ATL-L-2914-15) that accused former Chief Michael J. Morris of recommending that Raymond Davis take over as Chief upon Morris’ retirement despite Druding’s alleged superior qualifications.  Druding also accused Morris of encouraging him in 2010 to falsify a report to indicate that Morris and Captain William Fair qualified to carry a firearm when both had allegedly not so qualified.
