Prosecutor of Middle Eastern descent reaches settlement with his boss, Youngstown

Published: Mon, October 31, 2011 @ 5:32 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — A settlement has been reached in a federal religious and ethnic discrimination civil lawsuit by an assistant city prosecutor against his boss and the city.

In the settlement of the suit he filed in May 2009, Bassil Ally, a Muslim of Middle Eastern descent, will get a lump sum of $110,000 and a $4,000 annual pay raise, said Anthony Farris, city law director. Ally now earns $61,621 a year.

Of the lump-sum amount, $50,000 will come from the city because that is the city’s deductible on its insurance, and the rest will come from Midwest Claims, the city’s insurance company, Farris said.

Because the "boss" is running against Paul Gains. Vindy doesn't want "him" to appear too immature for the job.

The "Boss" is not the city law director. Don't blame him, Stan. Blame your buddy, Jay "I'm always right" Macejko. As I predicted earlier, he just cost the city of Youngstown a pile of money to keep his butt out of federal court. The cost of this settlement should be split between Makejko and Jay Williams, since their collective handling of this matter resulted in the payout. Of course the Vindicator, in displaying their obvious and predictable bias, will nor criticize either one of their "angels".

Evaluation of job perfomance should be ongoing and the taxpayers should not be burdened with their shortcomings . A raise of $4,000 ? Really ? Just what did Bassil Ally do to deserve it ?

Stan, precious Stan,

It's a settlement bonehead! What Ally did was become the victim of an incompetent supervisor. Read my previous posts on the subject several months ago. Macejko violated federal employment law and in doing so infringed on Ally's civil rights. That is the reason for the $110,000 settlement and the pay raise. The 'shortcoming' you speak of lies with Macejko, not with Ally.

Get it now ?

I can't wait to see how 'Macejko's Marauders' spin this atrocity, and if the Vindicator offers up an editorial denouncing their golden boy city prosecutor

"Stan, precious Stan,

It's a settlement bonehead! "

I don't really care . . .. The issue here is not his religious affiliations but the issue that I raise is job performance and the evaluation thereof .

The taxpayers deserve a decent return for their tax dollars that are spent . Let's evaluate job performance and replace as necessary to maintain effectiveness .
