HSRR filed a lawsuit on behalf of Lieutenant Jeff Bardzik of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department alleging that Bardzik was retaliated against by former Sheriff Michael Carona for supporting Carona’s opponent in the election for Orange County Sheriff. HSRR successfully opposed defendants’ motion for summary judgment and on March 28, 2011, the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued a published decision finding that Carona is not entitled to qualified immunity for retaliating against Bardzik in his position in Court Operations. Bardzik’s case against Carona and the County is expected to go to trial later this year.
