New York City Marshal Vadim Barbarovich has tendered his resignation, according to NYC’s Department of Investigation (DOI). He had been a marshal for 6 years. His departure stems from a DOI investigation that began in early 2018 over the proper serving of levies. It ended in a mutually agreed disciplinary stipulation on November 6th after DOI found that he had violated the New York City Marshals Handbook of Regulations.
Barbarovich had been linked to a Bloomberg News story series that alleged he had taken on numerous non-bank finance collections cases, a departure from the typical tenant eviction work that marshals are known for. While he is unable to take on any new cases or issue any new levies effectively immediately, he has until March 2020 to completely wind down his operations.
