EMPLOYMENT an adjunct professor who claimed that he was wrongfully terminated was awarded $46,000 in lost wages by a New Jersey jury on May 15. During a class he taught at Passaic County Community College, James Bishop engaged the class in a discussion about the role of politics in police work. Soon thereafter, Edwin Englehardt, then the Passaic County sheriff, wrote a letter to the college president claiming that Bishop “falsely inform[ed] the class the only way to get in and move ahead in the Sheriff’s Department is through political pull.” The letter demanded that the college take corrective action. Without undertaking any investigation, the college fired Bishop. Bishop sued the college and the sheriff. The college was found 100% liable. Bishop v. County of Passaic, No. PAS-L-5403-99 (Passaic Co., N.J., Super. Ct.). PLAINTIFF’S ATTORNEY: Douglas J. Kinz, West Paterson, N.J. DEFENSE ATTORNEYS: Joseph T. Afflito, Afflito, Raimondi & Afflito, Wayne, N.J.; William J. DeMarco, William J. DeMarco Law Office, Wayne
