There has been no news of the Mike Coughlin case, other than a hearing will be held at the end of the month in Dedham to debate whether this reporter should be deposed by the Town. To date, no one has been deposed on either side of the case.

On December 5, 2012 Coughlin filed a Whistleblower suit at Nortoflk Superior Court saying he wanted his job back, back pay and interest. In his suit, dated December 5, Coughlin named the Town of Cohasset, The Board of Selectmen (Ted Carr, Paul Carlson, Diane Kennedy, Fred Koed and Leland Jenkins) and Peter DiCaprio, individually and in his capacity as Chairman of the Board of Water Commissioners.

Harold L. Lichten of Lichten & Liss-Riordan, P.C. is representing Coughlin.
