More On New Jersey, Free Speech and Rats

The New Jersey Appellate Division declared unconstitutional a media and public relations policy as applied to a detective employed by the Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor. The detective had been disciplined for his contact with a television reporter in which he disclosed an "allegedly unsafe and hazardous condition at [the detective's] workplace arising from the presence of dead rats in what [he] believed to be a contaminated three-year-old pile of dirt in the Commission parking lot." The detective had been suspended for 10 days without pay. (Mike Frisch)
