Scranton Police, Fire Unions Win $21-Million Judgment



Scranton's police and fire unions have received a $21-million judgment for old debts the city owes from an arbitration ruling.
 
The Scranton Times-Tribune reported Thursday that the money was due July 2nd, but the city hasn't been able to pay. The city doesn't dispute that it owes the money.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                     City Solicitor Paul Kelly says the judgment means that in theory the unions could seize city assets and sell them.
 
The city has been trying to raise the cash through a private placement bond, but so far has been unsuccessful. Officials are also considering selling the Scranton Sewer Authority to raise money.
 
Union attorney Thomas Jennings says his clients are out of patience but he doesn't have a plan on what to do to get the money.
