Former LAPD Officer Sues, Says Fired for Exposing Ticket Quotas

August 29, 2014  | 

A former Los Angeles police officer who sued the LAPD, alleging he was denied promotions for complaining about an alleged ticket-writing quota, filed a second lawsuit, alleging he was fired in retaliation, reports the Venice-Mar Vista Patch.

In his original lawsuit, Dan Gregg, a motorcycle officer formerly assigned to the West Traffic Division, alleged his commanding officer ordered him to deny overtime-pay assignments to officers who did not cite enough motorists for traffic violations.

Gregg insists he was punished for refusing to go along with his superior and for testifying on behalf of two motorcycle officers who sued the department over the alleged quotas and collectively were awarded more than $2 million.

In his new suit, Gregg maintains he found out last September that an internal complaint was filed against him alleging he was illegally obtaining overtime pay. Gregg maintains the allegation was false.

Gregg was put on involuntary leave this spring and fired after a Board of Rights hearing, the new complaint alleges. He maintains he lost his job for exposing the alleged ticket quotas, which the LAPD denies ever existed.
