A Gibson state police corporal was awarded $340,000 by a federal jury in a lawsuit alleging the department retaliated against him for reporting wrongdoing by fellow officers.
The corporal alleged that his supervisor transferred him to the Honesdale barracks after he reprimanded a staff member. He also claimed that he was directed to falsify reports of investigations into misconduct by fellow troopers.
He claimed that several employees conspired to file false allegations of workplace harassment against him following the incidents, resulting in suspension without pay. He claimed a violation of his First Amendment right to free speech.
