Whistleblower - Lawsuit Won Against City Officials
A former Atlantic City solicitor who claimed she was fired for reporting a law firm's pay-to-play breach and unethical conduct by city officials has won a $1.2 million verdict. On Feb. 22, after a three-week trial before Superior Court Judge Joseph Kane, a seven-member Atlantic County jury unanimously found the city's acting mayor William Marsh and other officials retaliated against Kimberly Baldwin in violation of CEPA by firing her and by engaging in other conduct. The jury, in Baldwin v. Atlantic City, ATL-L-3060-08, awarded $850,000 in punitive damages, $256,567 in lost wages and $75,000 for emotional distress.
