The FOP is suing Mayor Kenney, District Attorney Larry Krasner, and Police Commissioner Richard Ross, claiming that a “Do Not Call List” meant to keep tainted cops from testifying in court damages the officers’ reputations.
The lawsuit filed Tuesday by Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5 also claims that Kenney, Krasner, and Ross failed to create an adequate due-process system that provides officers with the chance to defend themselves in front of a fair and impartial tribunal before being placed in a District Attorney’s Office database.
The lawsuit focuses on two groups of officers. One was identified by prosecutors working for then-District Attorney Seth Williams in March 2017. That list identified 66 current and former officers whose testimony might be problematic in criminal cases. Their names were released by Krasner under court order.
The second group is in a database that Krasner is developing. It adds officers whose credibility has more recently been questioned by Krasner and the police administration. Names in that database have not been released. The FOP’s suit characterizes Krasner’s database as a “testimony limitation program.”
