Attorney alleges Port Authority Cops Part of Insurance Fraud After His Client a Dentist is Found Guilty of Fraud.
It has reported that a Nassau County N.Y. Dentist Barry Cohan has been indicted for Insurance Fraud. The attorey for the dentist is up-set and claims that 30 Port Authority Officers http://www.panynj.gov/AboutthePortAuthority/PortAuthorityPolice/ who availed themselves of the Dentist , may have actually had knowledge of the scam.

The attorney Ron Russo for the fraudulent dentist has made allegations of disparate treatment in the insurance fraud arrest. He is upset that the 30 Police Officers were not arrested nor charged in this event. The Port Authority Inspector General http://www.panynj.gov/DoingBusinessWith/inspector/html/index.htmlhas stated they are investigating. The Daily News first reported this in 2007 see http://www.nydailynews.com/news/ny_crime/2007/11/28/2007-11-28_several_port_authority_cops_suspected_of-2.html
Generally, when you see Police misconduct it involves one or a small group. Here 30 Officer’s suggest an infestation, with the motive of ez money. Medical Insurance Fraud is on the rise ( see http://www.insurancejournal.com/news/east/2008/01/16/86470.htm) and is a serious issue, if Cops were involved the Port Authority should expedite the investigation and fire the officers and demand restitution for any monies fraudulently received.
