Cop sues for disability pension after city denies him 9/11-linked claim

Gregory Santana,  a retired NYPD captain, is suing NYC for denying him a disability pension reports Stephen Rex Brown in the New York Daily News. The city claims his post-traumatic stress disorder is due to combat in Iraq, not because of his work at the World Trade Center following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Santana’s diagnosis of PTSD was made while he was serving in the Army  (2003 and 2007).

After deploying with the Army, Santana returned to his career with the NYPD. He was retired by the NYPD because of his PTSD. Then the New York City Police Pension Fund’s medical board denied him disability pension.
