    “Messages left for Christy seeking comment have been unreturned.”

    Most likely a very wise decision. The upside here for him is that the paycheck clock continues to tick.

    If no “harm no foul is ruled”, he has lost no pay. If an adverse ruling warranting termination, the paid leave is not out of the State’s till, but the City’s till.

    Other professions receive similar latitude.
