Former chief exeutive drops legal action against albany mayor
Shelby-Bolton mayor’s $5 million settlement with former chief executive in $9M payout
Shelby-Bolton city attorney, David Wittenberg, a former U.S. attorney in Manhattan, plans to sue city President Robert DiIorio over $5 million he gave to the mayor in a settlement for alleged misconduct as mayor.
The former mayor will receive the settlement by Dec. 31, Wittenberg’s attorneys said in a court filing.
