GRIFFITH | Several town officials were named in a federal lawsuit filed Thursday by former Police Chief Ronald Kottka over his ouster as Griffith's top cop.
Kottka filed the suit in U.S. District Court in Hammond alleging two counts of violation of due process under the 14th Amendment, one count of defamation and one count for declaratory relief. He is represented by Chicago civil rights and employment law attorney Christopher Cooper.
Kottka is seeking compensatory damages of $100,000 from the town and the same in punitive damages from each defendant. He is also seeking attorney fees and a hearing on why he was demoted and essentially "forced into retirement," according to the lawsuit.
Ryfa previously said Kottka was not legally entitled to a hearing on his demotion.
Kottka, who retired effective July 13 after 38 years on the Griffith police force, was demoted along with former Lt.
After the demotion, Kottka experienced a hostile work environment, leading to his retirement, according to the lawsuit. He says the defendants caused him financial losses, mental anguish and embarrassment.
More than 100 residents protested the ouster of Kottka and Gulley at a Safety Board meeting in November, and a subsequent a Town Council meeting also drew a standing-room only crowd.

Officers were called at 9:39 p.m. Saturday to the 1800 block of North Arbogast Street for a report of an assault with a firearm, Griffith Police Chief Ron Kottka said.
When officers arrived, they found several people in the area and a 16-year-old male resident of the apartment complex with gunshot wounds, Kottka said.
The teen was taken to The Community Hospital in Munster with injuries that were not life-threatening, Kottka said. The boy's condition was not known Monday morning.
The Gary teen was charged as a juvenile in connection with the shooting, Kottka said.
Investigators are still working to determine what sparked the shooting and are continuing interviews with witnesses, he said.

Kottka, who served the department for more than 30 years, was demoted by the Town Council in November on a recommendation by the Safety Board.
Town Council Vice President Rick Ryfa, R-3rd, reiterated that Kottka is not legally entitled to a hearing on his demotion and the Town Council maintains this stance.
