    I posted here before under the username FDNY2000 but had a minor SNAFU with Firehouse and created a new username.

    I have a question for the OTJ guys, specifically FDsouthbxNY. I spoke with my brother last night, 1st Battalion, and he informed me that the rumor circulating amongst the job is that there could be upwards of 600 guys retiring by years end. Can you confirm/deny this?

    Yea, it is some lag time. Its the City of New York. Get used to it. Whatever enjoy the first few weeks of summer. Workout a lot. Have a couple beers on the beach on the weekends and then it'll be game time.

    but what does this mean? Is EVERYTHING on the table to be over turned? Will priority hires still be processed?

    Technical it could lead to no PHs and even the possibility of this newest being thrown out.

    Hard work and perseverance by Merit Matters, specifically deputy Chief Paul Mannix and the executive board, has paid off and justice has been done.....for now. We will see what this brings. However, with special thanks to The law firm of Sullivan and Gallishaw, we can assume that a new and hopefully right minded judge will review the case and side with Merit. This is a win for everyone who supports the protection of hiring standards and for the safety of the citizens of New York City.


    Just an FYI, the current test was not challenged in court. I don't know why the job would stop hiring from it. They want to hire, so I don't know why they'd stop. All the city is concerned about is having to pay damages and back salary.

    Tell me about it, 5 years in friggin limbo. Thanks a lot Garaufis for screwing thousands over for nothing. I hope this effects his career as much as i assume it will. He spent a lot of energy making this case as publicized as possible.

    Thing is: The PH's were not appealed by the city. That's the poison pill we still have to swallow.
    Unless by some miracle, there is an injunction that prevents that part of his ruling from standing as well.

    Still, the rest is a BIG win.
    Merit DOES matter.

    Now let's have detailed expense reports and repayment from his so-called "moderator"/buddy.
    And a summary forced retirement for Nick.

    What does this decision mean for List 6019?

    If the Judge that ruled 6019 discriminatory has been overruled, could they re-instate that list?

    And if not, do the 6019 Candidates who had a reasonable expectation of being hired off of that List have any legal recourse?

    "The appeals court did not reject the new policies but revised them."

    http://online.wsj.com/article/APbcaa...7f167bb85.html


    But the appellate panel — which delivered a split decision today, with one judge dissenting — will keep in place a court-ordered special monitor and an oversight regime that Garaufis put in place to ensure that discrimination is not occurring now within the fire department's ranks.
