2 Port Authority Retirees Sue Over Perks

Port Authority of NJ/NY

Two retired Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police officers who became lawyers have filed lawsuits because the agency revoked lifetime toll and parking passes.

Thomas Westfield filed suit on behalf of himself and is seeking class-action status on behalf of more than 400 fellow Port Authority retirees.

Westfield tells The Star-Ledger of Newark he was told when he started working in 1971 that the passes were a lifetime benefit.

Michael Shuhala is suing on behalf of himself, claiming the privileges were revoked without due process. He’s now a municipal court judge in Cliffside Park.

The Port Authority eliminated free toll privileges in 2010 after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie criticized toll-payer funded perks.
