BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- In a recent letter to Bridgeport officials, former Assistant Police Chief James Nardozzi declares his firing was political, and he seeks up to $1 million from the city to settle any potential legal wrangling, according to ctpost.

Through his lawyer, Nardozzi, who lost his $123,000-per-year job in January, is asking to remain on the city's payroll through the end of his contract, or that he get a $1 million settlement, the ctpost reports. The letter threatens a lawsuit if Bridgeport leaders don't agree, the ctpost reports.

Bridgeport leaders, meanwhile, say his position was eliminated during standard reorganization of the department. But officials would not comment on specifics in Nardozzi's letter, the ctpost says.
