Frankstown Township lawsuit heads to mediation

USA: The federal judge presiding over a civil rights complaint by a former employee of Frankstown Township has referred the case to a mediator based in Pittsburgh.

Attorney David B. White will convene a mediation conference on Aug. 22, according to an order issued by the U.S. District Judge Stephanie B. Haines, who presides in Johnstown.

According to Haines’ order, costs of the proceeding will be evenly split.

The effort at mediating the case in which former township employee Chris Bennett Jr. claims he was penalized and terminated for speaking out about unsafe working conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic will also continue on a track toward trial in case mediation does not resolve the matter, according to Haines’ order.
