Knapik won't comment on ACLU lawsuit

WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) — Westfield Mayor Daniel Knapik still is not commenting on the lawsuit claiming he ordered city workers to remove political signs from a residents home.

The 22News I-Team went to Mayor Knapik's office Monday. He was not there, and he did not return our calls.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a civil rights lawsuit against the mayor, claiming he ordered city workers to remove campaign signs right before the election.

Luke Ryan, the lawyer representing the plaintiffs in the case, told 22News that the mayor will be officially served with a summons in the next week.
