WEST PALM BEACH Sheriff's deputy Mark Kolakowski sued Sheriff Robert Neumann on Thursday, saying the sheriff did not abide by the findings of a termination review board and tried to fire him. The lawsuit, filed in circuit court, says Neumann did not review the record of Kolakowski's internal review hearings before deciding to fire him, thereby denying Kolakowski his rights. Neumann fired Kolakowski in November, saying he had lied to superiors. Neumann has since reinstated Kolakowski, but he is on paid leave. Neumann filed his own lawsuit challenging the review board's power to reinstate deputies. The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday rejected the latest appeal from Death Row inmate Paul William Scott. Scott, who was convicted in 1979 in the beating death of Boca Raton florist James Alessi, said scheduling conflicts put him at a disadvantage at a 1996 hearing at which he tried to find new evidence that his codefendant delivered the fatal blow. Though Scott's lawyer, Martin McClain, missed part of the hearing, another lawyer was there, and the high court said the hearing was proper. The court also affirmed its previous decisions not to remove Circuit Judge Marvin U. Mounts Jr. from the case, as Scott has requested seven times.
