Despite a judge’s recommendation that he only receive a reprimand, a city worker accused of disregarding warnings to stay off the Internet at work has been fired.

The office computer of Toquir Choudhri, a 14-year veteran of the Department of Education, had been used to visit news and travel Web sites.

Last month, Administrative Law Judge John Spooner ruled that surfing the Web at work is equivalent to reading a newspaper or talking on the phone.
