Portland Mayor Sam Adams Monday said he'll urge the City Council to appeal a state board ruling that ordered the city to reinstate fired officer Ronald Frashour to the police force with back pay and benefits.

On Jan. 29, 2010, Frashour shot Aaron Campbell in the back with an AR-15 rifle after Campbell had been struck with multiple beanbag-shotgun rounds shortly after emerging from a Northeast Portland apartment. Frashour said he thought Campbell was reaching for a gun. Campbell was unarmed.

In a ruling released Monday, the state Employment Relations Board unanimously ruled that the city violated Oregon's Public Collective Bargaining Act by refusing to follow an arbitrator's award in March that ordered Frashour be reinstated to the police force. The board ordered Frashour be returned to his job within 30 days, with back pay, benefits, and 9% interest.
