Police union official settles lawsuit with Bethel Park
The president of the Bethel Park Police Association has settled his retaliation claim against the municipality and police Chief John Mackey, his lawyer said Friday.
Lawyers for Kenneth Radinick and the municipality filed a joint motion to dismiss the lawsuit.
Radinick, 44, claimed that Mackey took several actions against him, including suspending him five days without pay, because of his activities as union president.
The municipality's civil service commission agreed with Radinick that the suspension was retaliatory and reduced his punishment to a reprimand. An Allegheny County judge upheld that ruling when the municipality appealed it, the lawsuit says.
Sam Cordes, Radinick's lawyer, declined comment. Mackey wasn't available for comment. Robert McTiernan, the municipality's solicitor, couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
