NORWALK, Conn. – There are at least three more hearings expected – including one Friday – in the arbitration hearing process for a fired Norwalk assistant town clerk, Norwalk Personnel Director Emmet Hibson said.

Debbie Troy, who is accused of stealing money from the city, was fired a year ago. An arbitration hearing was held on April 24. The arbitration statute calls for a decision within 60 days and its “typically two or three weeks” for briefs to be submitted, Hibson said at the time. He said he expected a decision in 90 days.

On Tuesday, Hibson said in an email, “The arbitration is ongoing, I am not sure how many arbitration dates it will take to conclude the hearing.  At this point there are three that are currently scheduled (June 27th, July 1st, and July 10th).”

Her criminal case has been continued yet again. A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for July 31, the 10th time the case has been on the docket.

    The amazingly byzantine public union job protection process on display. Don’t forget friends, public unions are pro-taxpayer…LOL

    Right on. One wonders how much FOUR arbitration hearings will cost taxpayers in legal fees and other expenses.

    I don’t see why she was fired before being tried. She hasn’t been proven guilty.

    @Dennis, ask anyone in the private sector if they get a trial before getting fired or if they get 4 arbitration hearings while being paid but not working? Give me a freaking break.
