A lawsuit filed today has alleged that the reason a veteran police officer committed suicide was because he was forced to have sex with a female boss in order not to be punished by workload and scheduling.
Officer Matthew Schindler, 39, shot himself on February 13 last year after pulling onto the side of the Long Island Expressway, New York on his way home from work.
His widow Gina Schindler has claimed that her husband was driven to his death because his boss Sgt Christine Hertzel forced him into an affair from which ‘he could not escape’.
According to the suit, filed at Queens Supreme Court, the highway officer was 'made to understand that he would suffer tangible detriment in his job, job assignments, work conditions and future prospects if he did not submit to the sexual advances and demands...', according to the New York Post.
Allegations: Gina Schlinder has filed a lawsuit that claims that her husband Matthew (right) committed suicide last year because he was under pressure for sex from his female boss
The widow, who was left to care for the couple's five-year-old twin girls after her husband died, is suing the NYPD and the Sgt Hertzel. She is seeking unspecified damages.
Mrs Schindler alleges that her husband had an affair with the woman from March 2011 until the time of his death.Officer Schindler reportedly tried to put an end to the relationship on February 13, saying he would kill himself over the guilt.

A spokesman for the city did not comment on the lawsuit and neither would Mrs Schindler's attorney. On the day of his death, the 14-year veteran, described by a friend as an 'an all-around great guy' had sent a text to his sergeant to say he wouldn't be seeing him any more.His fellow officers were ordered back to the 115th Precinct station-house, where flags were lowered to half mast, to be told the tragic news.

She shot to fame when she found herself in the midst of a love triangle between boyfriend Chris Brown and his on-off-on again beau Rihanna.
But following her split from Brown last year, model Karrueche Tran is grabbing a share of the spotlight for herself.
The 24-year-old leaves little to the imagination as she poses topless on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Out magazine.
The star's modesty is only just protected by her long black hair and a pair of flesh coloured panties.
Daring to bare: Karrueche Tran poses in just a necklace and flesh coloured pair of panties on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Out magazine
The steamy photographs show off the model's copious tattoos on her back and wrists, while a chunky necklace, ring, and smoky eye make-up complete the look.
Tran is more tactful than candid in an accompanying interview where she discusses the negative attention she received from fans - and sometimes seemingly from Rihanna herself - when she was dating Brown.
'It was very hard,' she admits. 'I first realised there was a change [when] more people would talk about me in blogs and such.
Moving on: The model speaks out about the 'negativity and misconception' surrounding her when she was dating Chris Brown
Naked reflections: Tran posed seductively in a trick shot where she showed off another tattoo on her hand
'The paparazzi would take pictures and follow me when I wasn’t around Chris. I was like "Chris is not here, why are you following me?" But I was constantly seeing myself on blogs and websites. It was kind of weird.'Cryptic tweets and Instagram posts from Rihanna were interpreted by some fans at being directed at Tran who says she tried to stay positive throughout.
Former love: Tran pictured with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown back in 2011
'The most challenging part about the attention was the negativity and the misconception from some people,' she says. 'People only see you in blogs and they think they know everything about your life. There are things that go public and everything that comes out is not the truth.'However, Tran is capitalising on her new found fameby bringing out a clothing line called The-Kill later this year.
'I've learned to find happiness within myself,' she told the magazine. 'I've also built a strong core. The past year was a big growing-up process for me. I'm not saying I was immature before, but the past year, my eyes were opened to a lot of things.''Honestly, all I want is happiness. There was a lot of dysfunction and negativity. I hope people can learn from my story. I want to be remembered as someone who remained positive through such a negative situation.'

With the alcohol fuel chortle-fest of the Golden Globes behind them and the stiff old Oscars just a month away, the stars turned to the SAG Awards on Sunday night for another round of backslapping and merriment.
And while this poor cousin of the really glamorous events can't lay claim to be the sexiest ceremony around, the 19th awards held at LA's Shrine auditorium turned to fantasy and fairytale for red carpet inspiration.
The prevailing themes seemed to be dark and dramatic or pale and fairy-like; with plenty of embellishment catching the late in the day California light after hours of showers.
It was fitting on a night that honoured the biggest fantasy hit of our TV times, Game of Thrones, that Ariel Winter also joined in the natural inspired fantasy theme.
Off to the ball: Jessica Chastain led the way in a sumptuous red gown as Hollywood's leading ladies experimented with drama and fairy tale fashion at the SAG Awards in L.A. on Sunday night
She wore a stunning beige gown which branched out into taffeta in the skirt and featured foliage on the corset, Jayma Mays and champagne heiress, Vitalie Tattinger, also showed off pale gowns that looked fit for a regal ball.
Rich tapestry: Naomi Watts was sumptuous in this delicate silver lace number
Continuing the theme, that old hero of fantasy and magical awards, Dick Van Dyke is to be honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
A fairytale come true: Katrina Bowden looked sensational in this duck egg blue embellished gown
The 87-year-old 'Night at the Museum' star - who has been working in Hollywood since the 60s - admitted he can't wait to accept the award at the star-studded 19th annual event in Los Angeles because it means a lot to be celebrated as an actor rather than an entertainer.
No warrant for arrest: Fashion Police host Kelly Osbourne chose a flattering black embellished gown
Black and blue: Kelly and Giuliana Rancic wore two of the season's hottest colours
Fashion fail: Alexander would look beautiful in anything but this ruched number added nothing to her look caption here
Speaking to People.com before the event, the 'Diagnosis Murder' star said: 'This was a surprise. People think of me as a song and dance entertainer. To be accepted by my peers as an actor is really a thrill.'
Her other half: Alexander's boyfriend, Peter Facinelli, scrubbed up well as he toasted the event with Vitalie artistic director of Taittinger champagne
The actor also revealed that he will be celebrating his seven-year anniversary with his 41-year-old wife Arlene, who he first met at the 2006 SAG Awards, where she was working as a make-up artist.
He said: 'There was something about her beautiful eyes.'
The couple married in a 'spur of the moment' ceremony in Malibu, California, on February 29 last year.
On a lighter note: Ariel Winter, Jayma Mays and Vitalie Taittinger chose pale and very interesting gowns
'Mary Poppins' star Dick - who presented Mary Tyler Moore with the Lifetime Achievement award last year - was first married in 1948 to Margie Willett in a ceremony broadcast live on radio show 'Bride and Groom'. They have four grown up children together, but divorced in 1984 after a long separation.
Delicate: Ariel and Jayma opted for fairy-tale frocks and both pulled them off wonderfully
The actor also had a relationship with actress Michelle Triola from 1976 until her death from lung cancer in 2009.The James Bond adventure Skyfall' and the fantasy series Game of Thrones picked up prizes for best stunt work from the Screen Actors Guild.The stunt honors were announced Sunday on the red carpet before the official SAG Awards ceremony, as stars were gathering for their guild's big night.JoBeth Williams and Scott Bakula announced the winners, noting the value of stunt players, who often are overlooked for their contributions to film and television.Among nominees for the 19th annual guild awards are Oscar winners Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones for the Civil War epic Lincoln; Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway for the Victor Hugo musical adaptation Les Miserables; and Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Oscar recipient Robert De Niro for the oddball romance Silver Linings Playbook.De Niro and Jones are in an exclusive supporting-actors group where all five nominees are past Oscar winners. The others are Alan Arkin for the Iran hostage-crisis thriller Argo, Javier Bardem for the James Bond adventure Skyfall and Philip Seymour Hoffman for the cult drama The Master.Honours from the actors union, next weekend's Directors Guild of America Awards and Saturday night's Producers Guild of America Awards - whose top honou8r went to Argo - typically help to establish clear favorites for the Oscars.But Oscar night on Febriuary 24 looks more uncertain this time after some top directing prospects, including Ben Affleck for Argo and Kathryn Bigelow for Zero Dark Thirty, missed out on nominations. Both films were nominated for best picture, but a movie rarely wins the top Oscar if its director is not also in the running.Steven Spielberg's Lincoln would seem the Oscar favorite with 12 nominations. Yet Argo and Affleck were surprise best-drama and director winners at the Golden Globes, and then there's Saturday's Producers Guild win for Argo, leaving the Oscar race looking like anybody's guess.The Screen Actors Guild honors at least should help to establish solid front-runners for the stars. All four of the guild's individual acting winners often go on to receive the same prizes at the Academy Awards.

And they did it.'Reports that Jennifer split from Hoult emerged earlier this month, with insiders revealing that the pair 'grew apart'.Jennifer has emerged as one of Hollywood’s hottest talents after her performances in Winter’s Bone, X-Men First Class, The Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook.She attributes her success in acting to her childhood, when she was a 'big liar.''I was just like a pathological liar when I was a kid,' she recently said. 'I just always lied about everything and I think it was partly I just wanted to one-up somebody.'

Men who have trouble becoming aroused during sex have long relied on Viagra to give them a 'boost'. Now scientists have discovered a welcome side-effect - it can melt away that 'spare tyre' as well.
Researchers found the drug converts undesirable white fat cells into beige fat, which burns calories instead of storing them in the waistline.
The substance also reduces the risk of other complications caused by obesity such as inflammation, which can lead to heart disease.
Study leader Professor Alexander Pfeifer, from the University of Bonn, said: 'Sildenafil (Viagra) is not only able to minimize erectile problems, but it can also reduce the risks of gaining excessive weight.'His team examined the effect of the sex drug on fat cells in mice after earlier tests revealed rodents treated with Viagra became resistant to obesity when fed a high-fat diet.
Could popping a sex drug help overweight men to fight the flab? It certainly works in mice, say scientists
The researchers administered the potency drug to the rodents for seven days.
'The effects were quite amazing,' said co-researcher Dr Ana Kilic.
Sildenafil increased the conversion of white fat cells, which are found in human 'problem areas', into beige ones in the animals.
'Beige fat cells burn the energy from ingested food and convert it to heat', said Prof Pfeifer.
Because the beige fat cells can 'melt the fat' and thus fight obesity, researchers are very hopeful for their potential.
The researchers found the drug also prevented white fat cells from increasing in size and releasing hormones that in turn cause inflammation. This could potentially reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes.'It seems that sildenafil prevented the fat cells in these mice from getting onto that slippery slope,' said Prof Pfeifer.
Tiny blue pills: Viagra is used to treat erectile dysfunction as well as a rare lung disease known as pulmonary hypertension
The team said these implications would need to be proven in additional studies.More than half a billion people are overweight worldwide. A survey published last year revealed that just over a quarter of adults (26 per cent) in the UK are obese. The condition increases your risk of developing a number of potentially life-threatening diseases such as cancer and heart disease as well as type 2 diabetes.Despite promising data in the latest study, researchers caution the public against assuming popping a Viagra pill will help them shed the pounds.
'We are currently in the basic research stage, and all the studies have been exclusively performed on mice,' said Prof Pfeifer.
Further research will be needed until potentially suitable drugs for decreasing white fat cells in humans will be found. The results, reported in association with the Max Planck Institute have been published in the Journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology.

Police were sent to Tom Cruise’s house following a report about an alleged armed intruder on the property.The call that alerted police is now believed to be a prank after Los Angeles Police Department officers arrived on the scene and found nothing suspicious. The action star and his family were not at the mansion when the incident occurred Thursday afternoon. The only ones home were Cruise's security team and personal chef, all of whom had no idea what was going on when the crew of police and SWAT officers appeared. Cruise is the latest in a growing group of celebrities to be the victim of 'swatting', where someone prank calls the police department saying that there was a criminal incident in process.Recently a 12-year-old boy was arrested in relation to similar incidents which occurred at the homes of Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber.Police were called to the 34-year-old 'Two And A Half Men' star and the 18-year-old Canadian popstar's houses, after police received anonymous calls claiming the properties were being robbed and in some cases victims had been taken hostage.
In the clear: Neither Tom Cruise nor any of his relatives were at the house when SWAT teams arrived Thursday afternoon
Insiders have revealed that the suspect lives with his mother in what has been described as an 'incredibly dysfunctional' home and refused to attend school recently because he prefers communicating with other hackers on his computer.Arrangements are now being made to move him into a more stable foster home.Though this incident was a hoax, it is not the first time that SWAT teams have descended upon Cruise's neighborhood. In August 2011, back when the actor was married to Katie Holmes, a burglary was reported on his block and because of the proximity to the multi-millionaire's abode, SWAT teams were called.
Scene: LAPD officers responded to a prank call saying that shots were fired in Tom Cruise's Beverly Hills mansion only to find out that there was no criminal activity going on and the call had been a hoax

Being chastised for poor etiquette by Lindsay Lohan might well be the equivalent of getting lectured on navigation by the captain of the Titanic.But just for the avoidance of any possible confusion Jennifer Lawrence would like to make one thing clear: she does not hate Meryl Streep.The Silver Linings Playbook star caused a stir on Twitter on Sunday when she collected her best actress Golden Globe and jokily exclaimed: ‘I beat Meryl!'Scroll down for video
The line was a reference to a Bette Midler quote from 1996 comedy The First Wives Club.But an unamused Lohan clearly didn’t get the joke. 'No1 should ever mess with a legend such as Meryl Streep,' Lohan tweeted sternly.Lawrence, 22, who is also nominated for best actress at the Oscars, laughed off the controversy in an interview on The Late Show With David Letterman on Tuesday.
Baffled: Jennifer Lawrence was bemused by criticism of her Golden Globes acceptance speech when she chatted to David Letterman on Tuesday night
'I had no idea Lindsay Lohan would take to the Twitterverse (to complain)…Twitter is very upset,' The Hunger Games actress joked.Insulting Streep – a three-time winner of the best actress Oscar and nominated on 14 other occasions – was the last thing on her mind, Lawrence said.'I was like, is that what this turned into? I don’t like Meryl Streep? As if I’ve had my eyes on getting that girl forever and I was like "Finally! I knew it would happen one day",' added Lawrence, describing Streep as ‘the best and the greatest.’
On the defence: The actress was responding to a barrage of criticism after she joked 'I beat Meryl!' in her acceptance speech
Stylish: The actress was wearing a fitted black trenchcoat with colour co-ordinated tights and heels
Asked if she had attempted to speak to Streep to clarify her comments, Lawrence replied: 'I don’t know if I want to — I’m nervous … I wanted to make a public statement, like "Hey idiots. It’s a quote from a movie!”'Lawrence is already on record as being a huge Streep fan. In an interview for Vanity Fair magazine she recalled being starstruck after seeing the Hollywood icon at an event.‘Once I’m obsessed with somebody, I’m terrified of them instantly,’ she told the magazine. 'I’m not scared of them — I’m scared of me and how I will react.

The Affordable Care Act means many things for women, including birth control for all policy holders with no additional payment from the patient required.A lesser-known facet of the new so-called Obamacare law is a provision that requires insurance companies to cover the full cost of breast pumps without a deductible or out-of-pocket expense for new mothers.The cost of these devices is covered in insurance premiums, which in turn are paid by policyholders.The Washington Post notes that it was pumps, not pills, that caught suppliers off-guard after January 1, when this part of the Affordable Care Act went into law.The catch for all new mothers is that only certain breast pump models are covered, and they have to be ordered through a licensed provider. Yummy Mummy, a New York-based boutique that specializes in accessories a new mother would need, has been mulling how best to serve their clientele.Owner Amanda Cole told the Post that she and her staff have been inundated with calls, and that she’s improvising how best to handle the new business.
Covered: Breast pumps and kits are now covered under insurance policies under the Affordable Care Act
The business owner recently signed a contract with health giant Aetna to become a licenced provider of breast pumps.So far, around five kits are covered by insurance, as well as bottles, breast shields, and caps.‘Now that the plan really took effect on January 1st, there’s been a marked change,’ she told the paper. Without insurance, new mothers could pay upwards of $300 for a pump, milk containers, sterilizers, and other paraphernalia.
Available: New York boutique retailer Yummy Mummy is one company registered to supply insurance-approved pumps
The $2.8 trillion U.S. healthcare system costs nearly $9,000 a year for every man, woman and child, according to Reuters. As the New York Times noted today, some policyholder’s insurance premiums went up by double-digit percentages in 2013 due in part to the ACA.The Times reported that Anthem Blue Cross in California has proposed raising its rates by 26 percent, and other private insurers are onboard.
Control: As part of the ACA in effect, insurance companies must provide any FDA-approved contraception
WHAT'S INCLUDED FOR WOMEN IN NEW 'OBAMACARE' GUIDELINES?
- Well-woman visits: Annual visits aimed at preventative care for adult women; more visits may be covered based on age, health status, and risk factors
- Screening for gestational diabetes: Pregnant women between 24 and 28 weeks of gestation may receive screening
- HPV testing: Screenings beginning at age 30, and every three years after that
- Counselling for STIs and HIV: Annual counselling and screening for HIV and STIs in all sexually-active women
- Contraceptive methods and counselling: All FDA-approved methods of birth control are covered, as are sterilization procedures, patient education, and counselling
- Breastfeeding support, supplies, and counseling: Lactation support is available, as is costs for renting or buying breastfeeding equipment for each birth
- Counseling and screening for domestic violence: Annual screenings for interpersonal and domestic violence
