At 3:00 yesterday afternoon the Suffolk Superior Court of Appeals posted their ruling on the case between the New England Police Benevolent Association, representing officer David Rawlston, versus the City of Worcester.
The court’s judgment found in favor of an earlier decision made by an independent arbitrator to reinstate officer Rawlston with full back pay. The judge’s more lengthy opinion will follow this afternoon or tomorrow.
The lawsuit stems from a 2007 altercation between an injured and off-duty Rawlston and three teens outside of his home. More background can be found here.
More information to come later.
