NPH attorneys have been battling for NEPBA Local 911, the Worcester Police Patrolmen’s Union, and its member Officer David Rawlston, since he was terminated in 2007. During the past 7 years, NPH attorneys have won 2 arbitrations reinstating him, 2 Superior Court Appeals, and, now, 2 Appeals Court appeals, as well as an application to the Supreme Judicial Court. After arguing a second appeal before the State Appeals Court, NPH attorney Peter Perroni has added this latest victory to the pile. Just last week, the Appeals Court ruled in favor of the Union.
