Burbank is Unsuccessful in Bill Taylor Case
Burbank, Calif. – After a lengthy trial, a superior court jury returned a verdict against the City of Burbank in a workplace retaliation lawsuit filed by former Deputy Police Chief William “Bill” Taylor.
From the beginning, the City believed that its actions were justified and in the best interests of the Department and City. Accordingly, the City vigorously defended this case and is disappointed with the decision.
Burbank’s City Attorney, Amy Albano, responded to the decision by stating, “Although the City is obviously disappointed with the decision, we are confident in our position and will be looking at all appropriate options about how to move forward as a result of this decision.”
The City would like to acknowledge the hard work of its legal defense team, in particular attorneys Ron Frank and Linda Savitt.
Looking toward the future, Burbank’s Mayor, Jess Talamantes, stated, “In consultation with the City’s legal team, we will continue to work for the best interest of the community. Ultimately, the City would like to successfully resolve cases like this and move forward in continuing its mission to ensure the public safety and welfare of our citizens.”
