A former New Lenox police officer filed a lawsuit against the Village of New Lenox earlier this month over a financial dispute on the officer’s disability benefits.

Paul Griffin was a New Lenox officer from 2002 to 2017. The lawsuit states on Sept. 7, 2016, Griffin suffered a “catastrophic injury to his lower left extremity” after leaving a subpoenaed appearance assignment to testify before the grand jury at the Will County Annex Court Building in Joliet.
