Morales alleges civil rights violation in federal lawsuit in opposition to metropolis

The deposed Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales stepped up his trial against the city of Milwaukee on Tuesday, suing the city and the Fire and Police Commission in federal court for violating its civil rights.

In the complaint filed Tuesday, which lists a new residential address in Oconomowoc for Morales, he claims the city violated his rights under the First, Fifth, Sixth and Fourteenth Amendment rights when the Fire and Police Commission passed him without a due date in the summer of 2020 process downgraded from boss to captain.

In December, Milwaukee District Judge Christopher Foley overturned the commission’s decision, calling it “fundamentally flawed,” without giving Morales due process. But he has not returned to work while he and the city agreed to a mediation process that could end in a large payout and separate ways.

In May, Foley ordered Morales to be reinstated by July 3 if no agreement was reached. Morales, who sold his house on the northwest side of Milwaukee in September, has announced that he is ready and willing to get back to work.
