FORMER ATLANTIC CITY
DEPUTY POLICE CHIEF
WIL GLASS WINS
$ 796,000 COMPENSATORY
AWARD FROM UNITED STATES JURY
 
TODAY, (THURSDAY) JANUARY 31, 2007 THE JURY WILL RECONVENE
TO AWARD PUNITIVE DAMAGES
 
Jury was out for less than one hour, before deciding in Chief Glass' favor.
 
Former Chief Arthur Snellbaker is at the center of all of this.
 
The jury believed Glass and all of his witnesses, that he was substantially wronged by Snellbaker.
 
Glass' witnesses were highly credible.
 
What will be very interesting to see, is the fact that a City employee, or, a former employee like in Snellbaker's case, cannot be indemnified by the City.
 
This means that Snellbaker could/should be personally responsible for any punitive damages awarded to Glass that the jury assigns responsibility to Snellbaker.
 
I will report on today's punitive award for Glass as soon as it is decided.
 
But, make no mistake about it, the jury has already decided that Glass will be receiving punitive damages. The only thing that remains is exactly how much they will award him.
 
Glass is so deserving of yesterday's result. The City should have responsibly settled this matter with Glass long ago. This was a big mistake.
 
Now, the taxpayers are going to get rocked for a 7-figure award.
 
Developing.
