Judge tosses defecating superintendent's mug shot lawsuit

A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a former New Jersey school superintendent who pleaded guilty to defecating on another high school's track.

Thomas Tramaglini claimed Holmdel police violated his constitutional rights by taking his mug shot and releasing it after he was issued summonses last year.
The judge found the mug shot did not reveal any information that was not already public and Tramaglini failed to address any connection between its distribution and his alleged injury.
Tramaglini eventually paid a $500 fine on a charge of relieving himself in public, which he blamed on a medical condition.
Tramaglini resigned as superintendent of the Kenilworth schools.
His attorney told NJ Advance Media a "new complaint is forthcoming in state court."
