Ex-chief Borosky appeals termination, files lawsuit demanding reinstatement

Joseph Borosky has appealed his termination as Craig Beach village police chief in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.

In a lawsuit filed Tuesday, Borosky of Austintown demands reinstatement with back pay after village council in this tiny Lake Milton shoreline community fired him in a 4-2 vote Aug. 28.

After council fired Borosky, Village Mayor David Spencer replaced him by elevating Rick Abbott from acting police chief to police chief.

Borosky had become village police chief in November 2011, but Spencer put him on paid administrative leave in June amid an investigation of complaints against him.

One of the complaints stemmed from a dash cam video that showed Borosky pulling a woman from her car and handcuffing her after a traffic stop.

Borosky complained that council’s Aug. 28 action was invalid because five members of council already had met to consider his continued employment Aug. 8, but did not have the two-thirds majority vote to fire him, which state law requires.

The lawsuit argues the Aug. 8 vote precluded further action concerning his employment and that the Aug. 28 vote occurred without notice and without a hearing.

The lawsuit, which contends Borosky was fired without due process of law, was filed by Attys. Dennis Haines and Charles W. Oldfield of Youngstown and assigned to Judge Lou A. D’Apolito.

Borosky lost his job as a humane agent with Animal Charity in January 2011, after the animal welfare agency said budget constraints made it impossible for it to continue providing humane-agent services.

Borosky is loaded down with "little-man" syndrome...He had a badge and used it to abuse the members of the community that he had sworn to protect...probably just another nutcase like that deputy from Trumbull County a couple of years ago...

Suggest removal:
