A current and a former Hollywood, Fla., police officer have won judgments of more than $1 million each against the city on claims that they didn’t receive promotions because of age discrimination and suffered retaliation because they sued.
Officer Michael Springstun and retired officer Francis “Frank” Hogan filed suit against the city and Hollywood Police Chief James Scarberry in 2004. They contended they were passed over for numerous promotions to the position of lieutenant despite high scores on aptitude exams and numerous commendations on file. At the time of the filing, Springstun was 53 and Hogan was at least a year younger. Hogan’s complaint was not available in the Broward clerk’s office and could not be viewed in time for publication.
