Ferriero on leave from legal job

While under indictment on federal fraud charges, Bergen County Democratic Chairman Joseph Ferriero remains the lawyer for the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission, a job that brought his law firm over $4.2 million in fees since 2002. A spokesman for the PVSC says that Ferriero is on a leave of absence and has not resigned.

On the day of the indictment, the Bergen County Improvement Authority pushed Ferriero's co-defendant, Dennis Oury, to resign his post as their legal counsel.
