Schamerhorn's Demotion Gets Argued In Court

"Nowhere in the (police) contract is he allowed to modify the punishment." ~~ Binghamton attorney Paul Sweeney contracted by the Town of Greece

Attorney Peter Nelson, representing Schamerhorn and the police union, argued that the arbitrator had the authority to change the penalty if he found it "arbitrary and capricious." (D&C)

Greece police officer Thomas Schamerhorn was demoted from sergeant to officer for botching the investigation into Greece Police Sgt. Nick Joseph's accident on 390 in June 2008.

SCATS ~~ WHY is the Town of Greece wasting $$ using a lawyer from Binghamton to argue this case??? Is DiRaddo incompetent?? Is there no one in all of Monroe County available??
