Riding Gloria

For Years, Former Cop Gloria Gonzalez Complained That a Spurned Bronx Lieutenant and His Buddies Harassed and Retaliated Against Her for ‘Not Playing the Game.’ Now a Judge Says She Has the Right to Sue Them.

Gonzalez's battles with the NYPD did not go unnoticed. Most of her allegations were backed up by Officer Adam Alvarez, an investigator in the department's advocate's office. In his deposition, Alvarez "testified to his concern that there was no reasonable suspicion" for Gonzalez to be tested. "Rather, he said, the officers who responded to his inquiries about why the test had been ordered made reference to Gonzalez's being on [a] 'hit list' of troublesome officers wanted off the force."
