Courts > LA County will have to turn over emails, other documents

By Tris DeRoma

Randy Foster, a former commander with the Los Alamos Police Department, won a significant victory in his case against Los Alamos County recently.
In March, the Santa Fe District Court ruled that the county must turn over more documents relating to his case against the county.
In January 2014, Foster filed suit against the county for wrongfully terminating him over how he handled a disciplinary matter involving former officer Brian Schamber.
Other plaintiffs in the suit include former detective Paige Early and Commander Scott Mills.
In December 2012, Foster learned from Early that Schamber, her work partner was making “disturbing” and “threatening” remarks about hurting people, that according to court records. In one instance, while Early and Schamber were riding together in their police car, Schamber allegedly started to drive the car erratically while making remarks about using the vehicle to injure other drivers on the road.
Foster also learned that Early had been reporting other instances of Schamber’s behavior to then police chief Wayne Torpy for over a year.
