BERLIN – A settlement has been reached in the $8 million harassment lawsuit filed against the Berlin Fire Company by one of its former paramedics.
The case filed by Zackery Tyndall against the Berlin Fire Company and members Bryon Trimble and Derrick Simpson in U.S. District Court was dismissed last week.
“The resolution is confidential,” said Jim Otway, Tyndall’s attorney. “I can state that it was resolved to my client’s satisfaction.”
The closure of the case comes three months after a federal court judge denied a motion to dismiss filed by the attorneys representing the fire company. In her opinion then, Judge Ellen Hollander wrote that the defendants claimed that what Tyndall called harassment was just teasing.
