BSO union president loses lawsuit against Sheriff Tony

The president of the Broward deputies’ union lost his civil rights lawsuit against the Broward Sheriff’s Office in an early court skirmish.

BSO Deputy Jeffrey Bell, a persistent foe of Sheriff Gregory Tony, criticized his response to the coronavirus in an opinion piece the South Florida Sun Sentinel published April 6. Bell accused Tony of ignoring “our repeated requests for personal protective equipment” and for “berating our union when we call attention to public safety concerns.”

In public statements, Tony disputed the accuracy of Bell’s article and called his allegations “despicable.”
