Sinsheimer & Associates Settles Claim Against the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office

Nov 21, 2017

Sinsheimer and Associates have settled a First Amendment/Wrongful termination suit brought by former Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office prosecutor John Bradley against the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office. The case settled for $248,000 and Bradley will be retroactively reinstated to his position as Plymouth County Assistant District Attorney for 19 months to calculate his retirement benefit.

Bradley was terminated after he stopped contributing to the District Attorney’s political campaign and raised concerns regarding the manner that violent criminals were being used as witnesses in prosecutions. The case was extensively covered by the Boston Globe.  In a recent article, Attorney Sinsheimer was quoted as saying that “it took a lot of courage to bring this lawsuit… I think this lawsuit served as a catalyst for real change in the Plymouth DA’s office.”
