The lawsuit filed by former Parsippany Police Capt. James Carifi against the township was dismissed without prejudice in Morris County Superior Court last week, but the Parsippany probe into Carifi's alleged theft of documents from the police station continues, the Daily Record reported.
Last Wednesday, Township Attorney John Inglesino filed a complaint filed at Morris County Superior Court that recounts allegations against Carifi, including that he reportedly stole and deleted confidential documents from his work computer and department network on April 1, the last day he worked for Parsippany Police.
Inglesino's complaint said a forensic inspection by Aurora Information Security and Risk showed Carifi's work computer had “a voluminous amount of PTHPD data [that] had been deleted from the PTHPD network share assigned and entrusted to Carifi”—and that much of the copying and deleting took place April 1, the article said.
The data allegedly stolen or deleted by Carifi is claimed to be “the paper equivalent of 957,342 pages of information,” the article stated.
Inglesino's complaint seeks repayment of $16,427 paid by the township for tuition, fees, books and other expenses for Carifi’s graduate-level studies because he did not stay at the department for two years following his studies, as promised.
