MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- A state appellate court recently ruled that the village of Mamaroneck was justified in banning its former chief from the department, according to LoHud.com.
Michael Pasqua was banned from the department for being verbally abusive to other firefighters and for ignoring a directive to not use an unsafe ladder from a captain at the scene of a fire in 2010, LoHud.com reported.
When the department voted to ban Pasqua, he then sued on the grounds that he was denied due process and that the punishment was excessive and was initially granted reinstatement. An appellate judge later overturned the decision, LoHud.com said.
Pasqua, a 30-year veteran, had been suspended previously for assaulting an officer, according to LoHud.com.
