East Bridgewater

Town settles suit over drug testing

Continue reading below

The town will pay $25,000 to two Department of Public Works employees who sued it after information that they were suspended from their jobs for failing random drug tests was made public. Daniel DeChristopher and Francis Sullivan Jr., both of East Bridgewater, failed the tests in 2011. They sued after their suspensions were discussed in public, arguing the information was a private personnel matter. The settlement includes $10,000 for DeChristopher and $15,000 for Sullivan to make up for lost wages during the suspension.
