BOSTON - A federal judge Monday dismissed a lawsuit filed by two state troopers who allege they were ordered to change the arrest report about a judge’s daughter.

U.S. District Court Judge George O’Toole ruled that the alleged wrongful actions of top state police officials, even if proven, did not meet the standards for a federal claim. The ruling was reported by The Boston Globe.

“In order to have a federal case, you have to satisfy a legal standard of ‘shocking the conscience,’ which is a very high bar,” Leonard H. Kesten, lawyer for the two troopers, told the Telegram & Gazette Monday night.

“He determined it wasn’t enough to ‘shock the conscience,’ ” Mr. Kesten said. “I respectfully disagree with him. I think the fact that four top officials of the state police were forced into retirement because of what they did speaks volumes about what’s shocking about it.”

Troopers Ryan Sceviour and Ali Rei alleged they were ordered to help illegally scrub the arrest report of a judge’s daughter who was arrested and charged with drugged and drunken driving on Oct. 16 after a car crash in Worcester.

The woman arrested, Alli Bibaud, 30, is the daughter of Dudley District Court Judge Timothy Bibaud. The two troopers wrote in their reports that she offered sex for leniency, that she noted that her father was a judge, and that she made a crude remark about performing a sex act to obtain heroin.

Troopers Sceviour and Rei allege they were ordered to sanitize the arrest report by Col. Richard D. McKeon, Maj. Susan Anderson, Secretary of Public Safety Daniel Bennett, and Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.

Judge O’Toole dismissed the case filed by the troopers in U.S. District Court. A similar case has been filed in state court. That complaint, filed on behalf of Trooper Sceviour in Suffolk Superior Court, alleges the Worcester district attorney, Mr. Early, directed a conspiracy to order the arrest report scrubbed. Mr. Early’s lawyer, Thomas R. Kiley, has said Mr. Early was only doing his job.

On Monday, Judge O’Toole “ruled there is no federal case,” Mr. Kesten said. “I respect the judge. I respect his opinion. I disagree with him.

“This changes nothing,” Mr. Kesten continued. “We will proceed with the state court case. We will proceed ahead and get to the bottom of it.”

Four police officials, including Col. McKeon and Maj. Anderson, have retired in the wake of the arrest scandal.
