A Forward Township police officer claims in a lawsuit moved to federal court Thursday that two township supervisors have harassed and defamed him because he ticketed one supervisor's friends and employees.

Jason Miller of Belle Vernon and his wife Jamie are suing the township and supervisors Thomas Derosa and David Magiske for civil rights violations and defamation. The lawsuit was originally filed in Allegheny County Common Pleas; the township had it moved to federal court because of the civil rights claims.

The lawyer for the township and a township spokesman couldn't be reached for comment.
