Fired Miami Police Chief Wants Job Back

Miami’s ousted police chief Miguel Exposito is asking a court to give him his job back.

Exposito — who had repeated run-ins with Miami’s mayor, city managers, and the county’s top prosecutor — Tuesday asked a Miami-Dade judge to overturn last month’s vote by the Miami City Commission to fire him. He is seeking reinstatement on the grounds that the commission took too long to let him go, The Miami Herald reported Wednesday.

The city commission voted 3-2 to ax Exposito six days after he was suspended Sept. 6 by the city manager, who said the police chief disobeyed his orders not to demote three high-ranking staffers and failed to rein in massive overtime costs.

Exposito argues that under the city charter, they had to fire him within five days or not at all.

“The city has to abide by the laws of this country, and when they don’t do that they get slapped on the wrist, and I think that is what’s going to happen here,” Exposito told WSVN-7.
A hearing date has not yet been set on his appeal.
