"If the city releases the cities or towns of residence, we cannot undo that action, and the city faces a suit for damages," said Milos in a memo this week to members of Mayor Donald Grebien's administration. "Therefore, I believe that the best course of action would be to defend a suit filed by the AG's office. If the courts ultimately decide to compel the city to release the cities or towns of residence, the city would have the protection of a court order and would not have to defend against a lawsuit filed by the (Fraternal Order of Police)."
