The now-former Kenilworth schools superintendent accused of repeatedly pooping on a high school track near his home has notified Holmdel police he plans to file a lawsuit over the mug shot taken after his arrest, according to legal documents filed by his attorney.
Thomas Tramaglini claims Holmdel police should not have photographed him at police headquarters because the public defecation, lewdness and litter charges, which remain pending, were low-level municipal offenses.
“On May 1, 2018, officers or agents of the Holmdel Police Department unlawfully took Dr. Tramaglini’s photograph and distributed and disseminated the ‘mug shot’ to third parties, including the media with the intent to harm Dr. Tramaglini,” according to the court filing.
The filing, known as a tort claim notice, by Tramgalini is a required legal step in advance of a full lawsuit. It lists potential damages of more than $1 million due to loss of income, harm to his reputation, emotional distress, and invasion of privacy.
Tramaglini made a first appearance in court June 12 and has since pleaded not guilty. He is due back in Holmdel municipal court at 11 a.m. on Aug. 13.
Tramaglini had been on paid leave from his superintendent job since his arrest.
