Wrongful termination case of Boston police officer featured in Boston Globe

The Boston Globe featured a former Boston Police officer’s legal challenge to her job termination a decade ago following an altercation with her supervisor.

Former Boston police officer Brenda James, represented by Tara Dunn and Max Stern of the firm, recently testified before the Massachusetts Division of Administrative Law Appeals on the events surrounding her suspension and eventual termination. The hearing will conclude with one more day of testimony and evidence on July 21.

The article details the administrative and legal challenges she has faced in having her matter resolved.

In a statement provided to the Globe, Mr. Stern and Ms. Dunn said: “We are grateful that Ms. James is finally being given the opportunity to prove her case before an impartial fact finder. This is the culmination of a ten-year struggle of a determined and courageous woman to find justice after being hounded out of the Boston Police Department for having the audacity to complain about abusive treatment by a powerful senior officer.”
