Fairfield Township Informant

Trials upcoming for two Fairfield lawsuits.

On May 26, 2015, I posted on this blog two separate civil complaints filed by Wayne Byrd (who claimed disparagement and a breach of confidentiality) and Robert Hulitt (who claimed wrongful termination from several Township positions).  I learned today that both matters are scheduled for trial this Spring.

Byrd’s trial is scheduled for Monday, March 28, 2016 and Hulitt’s is on for Monday, April 25, 2016 (postponed to June 27, 2016).  Both will be heard at 9 a.m. by Judge Richard J. Geiger at the Bridgeton courthouse.  Citizens interested in observing either trial should call Judge Geiger’s secretary at 856-453-4690 the day prior to ensure that the trial hasn’t been adjourned.

Former Mayor Michael Sharp’s March 6, 2015 discrimination lawsuit is still active and has not yet been scheduled for trial.
