Brookfield filed a motion in court this month for a judge to issue a summary judgement in a lawsuit against the former comptroller.  The Newstimes reports that Raymond Bolek's attorney said the case was slated to go to a jury trial in January, but that's change.  Bolek worked as the comptroller from 1975 to 2002 and 2004 to 2008.  He sued after Brookfield ordered him to return nearly $111,500 in pension benefits the town believed was overpaid.  Attorneys for Brookfield say Bolek “waived any claim” to say the town had breached the separation agreement when he paid back the money.
