Jim McCullough was a Lieutenant for the Pittsburgh Housing Authority Police Department, and had worked in law enforcement for almost 30 years. Lt. McCullough blew the whistle on several officers whom he had seen physically abusing an arrestee. Shortly after Lt. McCullough gave testimony to Internal Affairs, the Housing Authority terminated his employment. At his federal civil rights trial, we proved that the Housing Authority retaliated against Lt. McCullough for exercising his right to free speech. The jury awarded $140,000.00 in damages and the court awarded Lt. McCullough his full attorney fees. Lt. McCullough later thanked me in a letter that I keep to this day. He wrote, “As a law enforcement officer of nearly 30 years experience, and a witness in hundreds of trials, I can honestly say your performance was the finest I have ever seen. Your thoroughness in case preparation, and outstanding presentation, is only surpassed by your personal sense of justice. Your character and feel for your craft is a credit to your profession. It was an extreme honor having you represent me.”
