Discipline to proceed despite pending criminal action involving the same event

Discipline to proceed despite pending criminal action involving the same event Matter of Mountain, ___ AD2 ___, {1982] From time to time an agency is faced with the question of what it should do when an employee has been given a notice of discipline and there are criminal charges involving the same event pending in the Court. In Matter of Mountain, the District Attorney, Schenectady County, attempted to get a court order to stop a disciplinary proceeding based on the same facts instituted against Mountain by the City of Schenectady. The Appellate Division rejected the District Attorney's argument that a premature disclosure of the testimony of witnesses would imperil the criminal proceeding against Mountain. The Court also noted that a criminal defendant did not have any right to stop a disciplinary proceeding pending the outcome of the criminal trial and the "prosecution has no greater right to protect its case." The courts appear to agree that the disciplinary action should not be influenced by the fact that the employee is also facing criminal action as a result of the same event.
