Arnold police chief files harassment suit

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."

SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego's first-term mayor is beginning two weeks of full-time therapy while facing a sexual harassment lawsuit and calls for his resignation amid a flurry of allegations that he groped and forcibly kissed women for years.

Bob Filner's accusers, his one-time supporters and voters express skepticism that his therapy starting Monday is an appropriate remedy for what the mayor himself has described as years of inappropriate behavior toward women. Longtime therapists question how much progress can be made.

Neither Filner nor his office has released details about his therapy or its location. Filner is picking up the tab for the treatment.

He is set to be grilled by lawyers under oath Friday in the harassment lawsuit brought by his former communications director.

   Ladue High School administrators are hoping to start a new graduation tradition this year, one that doesn't include the notorious "Senior list."  The list is an annual prank in which a list is published that makes sexually derogatory comments about several junior or senior girls.  

   The school made national headlines in 2012 when a parent filed a civil rights complaint over the list.  That prompted a federal investigation.  

   Since then school officials have waged an aggressive anti-bullying, anti-sexual harassment campaign.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that they've also warned students of severe consequences for anyone who puts out such a list.  Anyone involved in making a list face suspensions, and seniors won't be allowed to participate in graduation.

SLU Law School interim dean resigning

The interim dean of St. Louis University's law school is resigning. Attorney Tom Keefe says he made "politically incorrect" statements that were inappropriate for a person in his position.

Keefe has held the temporary academic post since August. He had volunteered to take the position without pay.

Keefe is also being accused of sexual harassment. He denies that charge, but says he has made some inappropriate comments and may have been misinterpreted.

Keefe says he isn't being pressured to step down.

The university hasn't released a statement on Keefe's resignation.
