Dozens of fired officers seek review of cases

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dozens of fired Los Angeles police officers are taking up the chief's offer to re-examine their dismissals since a deadly rampage by Christopher Dorner, who claimed that he was wrongly expelled from the force.

The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/Y7E2uY ) reports 40 former officers have requested case reviews in the two months since Dorner killed four people before apparently committing suicide in a mountain cabin.

Dorner claimed his 2009 firing was prompted by racism. Chief Charlie Beck vowed he would re-examine the cases of other officers who believed they were wrongly expelled.

However, the Times reports the officers have been told the city charter prevents the LAPD from reinstating officers who were fired more than three years ago.
