Worker who refused to put up campaign signs wins lawsuit

A former Spook Rock Golf Course groundskeeper has won a legal victory against the town of Ramapo after he claims he was forced to quit his job because he refused to put up campaign posters for his boss.

A White Plains jury ruled in Timothy Cronin's favor in his lawsuit, which he filed in 2005 when he claims he had to quit his job because of his refusal to hang up campaign signs for town supervisor Christopher Saint Lawrence on his property. However, the jury only rewarded him $1 in damages, when Cronin requested $1 million in damages, claiming he suffered financial hardship.

Ramapo's town attorney Michael Klein says Cronin's termination was voluntary, and believes the jury awarding him only $1 shows the jury believed his lawsuit had no merit. The town has filed a motion to have the case dismissed.
