Monteiro Final Pre Trial Conference Rescheduled

Today, August 3, The Middlesex Superior Court has deferred, yet again, the final pre-trial conference on the last two plaintiffs in Monteiro v. Cambridge.

Action was taken in response to Cambridge’s motion which in turn was assented to by the plaintiffs.

New date is September 14, 2011 at 2 pm, session F in the Woburn Superior Courthouse. Order of Dennis J. Curran, J.

The case originally had 5 plaintiffs. Two settled handsomely. Malvina Monteiro is in Appeals Court awaiting decision of a three judge panel on a jury/judge finding that the Cambridge City Manager was “reprehensible” for destroying the life of this black, Cape Verdean woman who was head of the Cambridge Police Review Board. Judge and Jury say that she was fired in retaliation for the civil rights claim.
