Universal Hub is reporting that a state trooper who was acquitted last year on assault-and-battery charges related to a 2018 fight outside of Dorset Hall, is suing State Police for back pay and lost benefits.
Trooper Matthew Hickey of Dorchester was originally charged by BPD with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing serious injury for an incident outside Dorset Hall back on Dec. 1, 2018 that left one woman’s leg broken.
In March 2021, Suffolk Superior Court found him not guilty following a trial – so now Hickey is suing the MA State Police.
The suit, which was filed Wednesday in Suffolk Superior Court, states laws that Hickey says entitles him to the roughly $180,000 in lost wages and benefits from that period due to the fact he was found not guilty of the charges that led to his suspension.
