Courts > Complaint details events leading to Schamber’s commitment

By The Staff

Lawyers for former LAPD commanders Randy Foster, Scott Mills and detective Paige Early filed a whistleblower lawsuit against Los Alamos County Wednesday, alleging wrongful discharge, retaliation and gender discrimination.
Also Wednesday, the lawyer for former LAPD officer Brian Schamber, John Day, said anything in the lawsuit that pertains to Schamber was fiction. Schamber earlier settled with the county for $600,000.
The county issued a statement Friday morning, saying it had not been served as of Thursday, but it would look into allegations in the suit.
The Los Alamos Monitor will continue to break down the suit. The story picks up after Early speaks with Mills and Foster on the phone and Early tells them about her concerns with Schamber.
Following the call, and at approximately 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 21, Foster looked at Schamber’s Department file and found considerable support for Early’s statements, including the fact that Schamber had undergone psychological evaluation. He noted that the file contained statements from Dr. Susan Cave and Dr. Gregory Baca clearing Schamber to return to duty.
