Atlantic County prosecutor, Damon Tyner, resigned today after facing multiple lawsuits and ethics complaints. Gov. Phil Murphy’s office confirmed Tyner’s resignation was effective at 9 a.m. In 2019, three current and former employees of the county prosecutor’s office sued Tyner alleging he discriminated against them on the basis of gender and created a toxic work environment for women. The suit also alleges he engaged in mortgage fraud and other misconduct. The attorney general’s office concluded in an investigation of internal affairs complaints by the same women that Tyner had lied to the public, failed to recuse himself from cases when he should have and was involved in retaliation against a whistleblower.
