If they can't make him pay back his salary, he at least needs to pay back his court costs. We have supported him for over 3 years while he did nothing except buy a few antique cars.

I was wondering where "Fatman" stood on this? NOT! And "citycomplainer13" Holliday was not tried in front of a jury, which he should have been! Along with the two commissioners that helped him steal $176,000 form the tax payers of Parkersburg.

Maybe they can sue the civil service board or whatever board refused to see the evidence against this low life and try to recoup money from them since they failed to bring a thief and **** panderer to justice and uphold the firing in the first place. As for why it took so long for this to finally make it to Circuit Court should definitely be investigated. It's an outrage he was able to collect so much money while doing nothing for it.

Well there "opinion" if that what you want to call it, cost us tax payers $176,000! And if it was politically motivated we need to know who was behind it. I have an idea but it would be nice to know for sure!

If it was politically motivated we need to know about it, and charges needs to be filed! Remember the Fraternal Order of Police filed a frivolous lawsuit against the city of Parkersburg and Mayor Newell right before the primary election last year. And One of the two commissioners that voted to reinstate Holliday was appointed by the Fraternal Order of Police and other one was appointed by Chamber of Commerce

The fact that he didn't do any work for two years says a lot. If I felt I was fired unreasonable and wanted to sue - I would find other work in the meantime - not just be a fat tick on the city's back. Five bucks says he will appeal - why not more free money if he wins. This is disgusting, people have no pride or shame anymore.

And are they at least going to pay back the $6,440 attorney fees, now that Judge Reed ruled that the Police Civil Service Commission, overstepped its authority?

I'm telling you somebody needs to be looking into why 2 of the 3 Commissioners voted to reinstate Holliday after Mayor Newell fired him in 2010,
