Cheating crane operators keep licenses

October 14, 2008 08:44AM

Months after the city’s chief crane inspector, James Delayo, was indicted in June for taking bribes and issuing crane licenses without proper testing, none of the operators at Nu-Way Crane who allegedly benefited from the scheme have been retested. Ten of the company’s 11 crane operators received their licenses between 1996 and 2007 — the period in which the company paid Delayo $10,000 to help applicants cheat on their licensing exams. Nu-Way’s operators will retain their operating licenses until they are retested on January 1, 2009.
