Boston fire chief Abraira threatens to sue deputies
(MyFoxBoston.com) – Boston's embattled fire chief is now threatening to sue his deputy chiefs as they continue to launch what his lawyer claims are defamatory attacks.
In a letter sent to Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino last month, the deputies wrote that Chief Steve E. Abraira showed no leadership following the Boston Marathon bombings and acted more like a spectator than a fire chief.
Abraira claims when he arrived on the scene, things were already under control and there was little more he could do at that time.
In The Boston Globe, his attorney says they are prepared to file a suit and says using the bombing as a platform to oust the chief is "outrageous."
