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
CHICAGO — Two Chicago Police officers are suing the city and Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy's office, claiming a paperwork error has unfairly kept them from being promoted to the rank of sergeant.
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.
