Officer pleads not guilty after K-9 death

MEDINA, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio officer whose police dog died from heatstroke in his cruiser has pleaded not guilty on two misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty.

The Medina Municipal Court clerk’s office says an attorney filed the plea on behalf of Montville Township police Sgt. Brett Harrison.

Police say the two-year-old German shepherd, Beny, died September 28 after Harrison left him in a cruiser in the station parking lot from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 

The cruiser was off and the windows were closed.

Harrison previously issued a statement apologizing to the township, calling Beny a “partner, friend and loving family member.” 

Harrison received a two-week unpaid suspension and lost 40 hours of vacation.

Servers settle suit over skimpy uniforms

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Forty women employed at an Atlantic City casino have resolved their discrimination lawsuit over skimpy uniforms.

The lawsuit was filed in 2011 after Resorts Casino Hotel adopted a roaring ‘20s theme after the popularity of the HBO series “Boardwalk Empire,” which was based on Prohibition-era Atlantic City’s reputation as the vice capital of the East Coast.

The uniforms were short, skin-revealing black dresses with deep open backs. Waitresses also wore fishnet stockings and ornate Jazz Age hats.

Older servers claimed they were told they had to audition for their jobs in the new skimpy flapper costumes. They said they were given costumes too small for them and were photographed in awkward poses that emphasized body fat.

A panel put together by an outside modeling agency recommended who should stay and who should go based on photographs of the auditions, according to court documents.
