A lawsuit over whether Denver police are being properly compensated, including a dispute over whether they should be paid for the time it takes to dress for work, can move forward to trial, a federal judge has ruled.
U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch on Tuesday granted the city's request for summary judgment on two of the 10 claims sought by 856 police officers but ruled that the rest should go to a bench trial.
The judge also ruled that the time it takes officers to put on and take off their uniforms and equipment is compensable, but he gave the city the right to argue at trial that such activity is so insubstantial or insignificant that it should not merit pay.
