Ex-sergeant s lawsuit against Fostoria closed

FOSTORIA A former Fostoria police sergeant s lawsuit seeking back pay for sick time has been dismissed.

Fostoria Law Director Tim Hoover said the case was dismissed Friday in Seneca County Common Pleas Court, just a day after Fostoria City Council gave Mr. Hoover authority to negotiate with the attorney for Nick Portentoso.

Portentoso resigned from the force in 2003 and was later convicted of stalking and menacing his estranged wife.

He was seeking nearly $25,000 for accumulated sick time. A trial was to have begun yesterday.
