Officer Sues Capitol Police for Restricting Duties

April 30, 2012  | 

A Capitol Police officer has filed suit against the department for restricting her duties and challenging her fitness for the job following the suicide of her husband.

On April 27, Judy Gordon filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, seeking damages and lost wages after the department put her on administrative duty and blocked her scheduled overtime last year.

According to a copy of the complaint obtained by The Hill, Gordon was approved for 240 hours of federally mandated Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) time, which the department provides to officers to deal with chronic or recurring conditions.

Read the full The Hill story.

She'll win! The management of the Capitol Police better have a dam good reason for restricting her duties and questioning her fitness. It's the 21 century, Wake -up! Sounds like someone has an axe to grind.

Frank, how about reading the whole story. HER doctor stated in her paperwork that she experienced “intermittent periods of severe and incapacitating periods of depression”. Sounds like they were trying to prevent workplace violence.
