The lawyer for a veteran Cleveland firefighter terminated after pleading guilty in a shift-trading scandal says he's disappointed with the city's decision.
Cleveland defense attorney Henry Hilow says Thursday that given what he calls the city's mismanagement that the treatment of Robinson is not justified and he should get his job back.
Authorities accused the firefighters of illegally paying co-workers to cover their shifts.
Northeast Ohio Media Group reported Wednesday (http://bit.ly/1mW6MoR ) that the city also says it will pursue administrative charges against 19 department supervisors.
