This story started appearing on WBBM-AM 780 earlier yesterday. The only print version however seem to be in the Southtown Star, a Sun Times paper:
- Two Chicago Police officers are suing the city and Chicago police Supt. Garry McCarthy’s office, claiming a paperwork error has unfairly kept them from being promoted to the rank of sergeant.
Kenneth D. Fowler and Jarrod L. Smith filed the suit Monday in Cook County Circuit Court. Both claim they were among the top 200 scorers among thousands of test-takers when the city last offered the police sergeants exam in 2006, according to the suit.
They had been scheduled to take a five-week training class required to assume the rank of sergeant starting Monday, they claim. But neither is allowed to attend because they claim the city’s Human Relations Department lost their college transcripts, and refused to re-schedule them to take the class after they hand-delivered the documents Friday.
Again, Ladner is incompetent and going to cost Rahm money. The Department has too often had to amend class lists for mistakes, errors and omissions. This is no different.
And the Sun Times Group is once again stealing stories from the blog - that's twice yesterday. You're welcome.
