Former Parsippany police captain James Carifi is again being taken to court by his former employing township, which claims he is intentionally withholding a device storing confidential police and internal affairs reports.
The motion was filed by attorney Denis Driscoll, according to dailyrecord.com, and is expected to be reviewed Friday by Judge Rosemary Ramsay in Morristown.
Carifi consented to a court-appointed expert examining a computer which the township said Carifi illegally downloaded some one million pages of police reports and confidential documents in 2013 before abruptly announcing his retirement.
During that investigation, it was determined Carifi used three devices to download the information, but has only turned over two of them, the report said.
If Carifi turns over the third device, the motion will be withdrawn, the report said.
Because of the investigation, Parsippany has not recognized Carifi’s retirement and has not paid him any accumulated sick or vacation time.
