Cops suing after paperwork glitch upset planned promotion

They had been scheduled to take a five-week training class required to assume the rank, they said

Kenneth D. Fowler and Jarrod L. Smith filed the suit Monday in Cook County Circuit Court. Both claim they were among the top 200 scorers among thousands of test-takers when the city last offered the police sergeants exam in 2006, according to the suit.
