WESTFIELD — A trial date has been set for April 3 in Hampden County Superior Court for a lawsuit filed by three Westfield firefighters who allege that the Westfield Fire Department retaliated against them for cooperating with a law enforcement investigation.The trial will start nearly three years after the consolidated lawsuit was first filed by Westfield Fire Capt. Rebecca Boutin, Firefighter Kyle Miltimore and Firefighter David Kennedy. The three alleged that their employment was terminated in 2019 after they cooperated with a Massachusetts State Police investigation into sexual assault allegations levied against now-Fire Chief Patrick Egloff.
