Report: Jennings Seeking Deferred Pay From Morgan Stanley

The Darien banker, who had been accused of assaulting a New York cab driver in a violent dispute over the fare, saw all charges against him dropped in court.

William Bryan Jennings, the Darien banker who had been accused of cutting a New York cab driver's hand with a pen knife during a dispute over a cab fare in December 2011, is reportedly trying to get millions in deferred compensation from his former employer, Morgan Stanley.

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Jennings, who saw was fired from the firm just weeks prior to the court's ruling.

Jennings had been facing up to five years for second-degree assault, theft of services and intimidation by bias or bigotry in connection with the highly-publicized "hate crime," however a judge dismissed the charges because cab driver Mohamed Ammar had the pen knife — a key piece of evidence — in his possession for months after the incident before turning it over to police.

Jennings is seeking up to $5 million in deferred compensation, according to the report.

President Lincoln abolished slavery but did he free the slaves? No. Jennings' bogus charges were dropped but does he have his life back? No. It's not easy to pick up the pieces. You need support from your friends, family, lawyers and doctors. It's a tough reality to realize you may never be whole but certainly you will be the best you can be. The most important driving force may be knowing you always have more friends than you think.

None of. us where there. "Real friends" would recommend to this guy to get home sober and attend to his family and have nothing but good manners towards a person working nights. It wasn't the cab driver, it was a person who has no right to treat people this way; his family or the cabbie. If you can't understand this then you are probably living the same unhappiness and arrogance.

john --i suggest you keep to placing irrigation systems on rich people's lawns and overcharging them, rather than tell people you were not there, and then tell us why the one guy is wrong and the other wrong. were you there? or were you not?

SB..Sounds like you are trying to say you are jealous of something. And the rest of it is not understandable and convoluded.. Also your question is answered if you slowly read it and try to comprehend. You are having trouble understanding. hint-hint.

Jealous? Where do I sound jealous? Here is what you said "It wasn't the cab driver, it was a person who has no right to treat people this way; his family or the cabbie. If you can't understand this then you are probably living the same unhappiness and arrogance." So , John, sounds to me that you feel that the banker was guilty. That he treated the cab driver disrespectfully. Yet, you said you were not there. So? How do you know anything? And to distinguish between someone working nights--?? What does this mean? If you work at night, you work harder than someone during the day? And then you call it arrogance? On what basis , John? That people who make money are arrogant? That balking at paying 250 dollars for a service that should cost 150 dollars is arrogant? People should pay it, because the guy works at night? No-I dont know what happened. Neither do you. But you are deciding that one guy is hard working; works at night; While the other is arrogant , rude and drunk. Im wondering -the next cab ride you take--be it in Darien, New York or from an airport in Florida, when the meter says 30 dollars and the cab driver says you owe me 200 dollars, if you just pay it, because otherwise, you are arrogant? Like I say , if you have a problem with rich people, maybe you shouldnt be putting irrigation systems on their lawns.
