Sinsheimer & Associates Wins Major Summary Judgment Motion Against Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office For Political Retaliation

Jan 10, 2018

On March 30, 2017, the Federal District Court entered an order denying a motion for summary judgment by the Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz and his former First Assistant, Frank Middleton.

In 2012, John Bradley was removed from his position as Assistant District Attorney in retaliation for declining to contribute to the District Attorney’s re-election campaign.  The Defendants moved for summary judgment.  However, the Hon. Indira Talwani, found that there were sufficient facts for a jury to believe that Mr. Bradley was terminated as a result of his decision to withhold political support from the District Attorney’s re-election campaign.

The case will be tried before a jury in Federal District Court, beginning on January 8, 2018.
