A trial of the case in which former Red Bank Police Chief Larry Sneed is suing Red Bank has been delayed.
The trial had been set to start on Tuesday before Chancellor Jeff Atherton.
However, the two sides cannot agree on whether it should be heard by the judge or by a jury.
Red Bank wants the chancellor to hear it, and former Chief Sneed wants a jury.
Red Bank will file an interlocutary appeal on the issue.
He filed suit after being terminated by then-City Manager Chris Dorsey in July 2010. Mr. Dorsey was later fired himself.
