A high ranking member of the New Orleans Police Department is back on the job.
Captain Harry Mendoza has been reinstated and will serve as commander of the arson unit.
Mendoza was fired more than two years ago, and at that time WDSU was the first to report the story.
Police Superintendent Warren Riley said Mendoza played tennis and worked out while he was supposed to be on duty.
Lawyers for Mendoza said the termination was political because Mendoza has close ties to former mayoral candidate Mitch Landrieu.
Both federal and state courts as well as the city's civil service commission all agreed Mendoza was wrongfully terminated and ordered him reinstated with back pay.
