Lesbian teacher at Ohio school won't get job back

Thursday, 15 August 2013 15:06 Published in National News

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A lesbian teacher challenging her firing by a Roman Catholic school in Ohio will not get her job back as part of a settlement reached with the Diocese of Columbus.

The attorneys for Carla Hale and the diocese on Thursday announced that as part of the agreement, she will receive "acknowledgement" for her years of service at Bishop Watterson High School. Both parties declined to give details of the settlement.

Hale is a physical education teacher. She had argued she was fired after her mother's obituary included the name of Hale's partner and someone complained.

Bishop Frederick Campbell had said Hale was fired not because of sexual orientation but because she violated the church's moral teaching by having what he described as a "quasi-spousal relationship" with a woman.

Zumba madam declines to testify at trial

Thursday, 15 August 2013 15:04 Published in National News

ALFRED, Maine (AP) - A judge says a Maine woman convicted of running a prostitution business out of a Zumba studio doesn't have to answer prosecutors' questions in the trial of a man accused of patronizing her.

Justice Roland Cole ruled Thursday after Alexis Wright's attorney argued that testimony could open her up to prosecution on new charges.

Prosecutors wanted Wright to testify in next week's trial of former Kennebunk High School hockey coach Donald Hill. Wright declined under oath to answer questions about him.

Wright is serving a 10-month sentence for prostitution and other charges. Hill is the first alleged client to go to trial.

So far, 68 people have been charged with paying for sex. At least 58 others have pleaded guilty.

Arnold police chief files harassment suit

Thursday, 15 August 2013 14:26 Published in Local News

ARNOLD, Mo. (AP) - A suburban St. Louis police chief claims harassment from a current councilman and former councilwoman in a lawsuit filed in St. Louis County.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Robert Shockey's lawsuit also alleges retaliation, negligent supervision and training, and age discrimination.

The allegations stem from a complaint city parks director Susie Boone filed last year with the Missouri Commission on Human Rights against councilman Ken Moss. It alleges she experienced problems with Moss after his sister was fired from her department.

Shockey is also the interim city administrator. He hired a private investigator, and the city ultimately agreed to pay Boone a $55,000 settlement and give her extra job security.

Moss previously filed a defamation lawsuit against Shockey and other officials claiming they orchestrated a "sham investigation."
