A federal judge has set the trial date for former deputy Curtis Larrick’s lawsuit against Sheriff Tony Guy and the County of Beaver.

Following a short 10-minute status conference for the case held on Wednesday, Magistrate Judge Cynthia Reed Eddy issued an order setting jury selection for October 31st. The anticipated week-long trial is set to begin on November 5th in Courtroom 10A, 10th Floor, of the U.S. Courthouse building in Pittsburgh.

Attorneys were ordered to prepare a laundry list of documents due ahead of trial, including pretrial statements, witness lists, exhibits, and proposed jury instructions.

Larrick alleges he was fired by Sheriff Guy at the start of his administration as an act of political retaliation, while Guy insists he terminated Larrick because of his character. Judge Eddy denied a motion by Tony Guy and Beaver County to dismiss Larrick’s civil case last month, determining a jury could reasonably find the Sheriff’s stated rationales for firing Larrick to be “incoherent and implausible.”

Get this… THE JUDGE SAID- a jury could reasonably find that Tony Guys stated rationales for firing Larrick to be “incoherent and implausible.”

Let that sink in a little bit!

Please don’t describe it as “incoherent and implausible.” This could make him attractive as County Commissioner material.

Incoherent and implausible. That’s our Sheriff of Beaver County Pa. Only thing more scary are some of the disturbed deputies. Get an outside doctor of psychiatry to do some mental health evaluations on them. Not the asshole here in Beaver County that rubber stamps good to go on there disturbed asses.

What would Tony Guy know about ‘character’?

One advantage of attending — watch them set a record on the Courthouse under-oath testimony Lie-o-Meter, then see if the judge is pro-active on punishing perjury. These guys are pros at fabricating bullshit and “living the lie.” Not since “racking a shotgun with one hand for your boss” have we had the chance to see perjuring bullshit first-hand. Great fun!
