CHICAGO (AP) - A federal judge has delayed a decision about granting Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford's request to throw out a lawsuit filed against him by a former employee.
 
An attorney for former employee Edmund Michalowski asked at a Thursday hearing for a month to respond to Rutherford's motion. Judge Joan Lefkow agreed. She didn't say when she would rule on Rutherford's request.
 
Michalowski accused Rutherford in January of sexual harassment and making him do political work while on state time.
 
Rutherford denies the claims and says they're politically motivated. The lawsuit came in the midst of Rutherford's failed bid for the Republican nomination for Illinois governor.
 
Rutherford's attorneys argue Michalowski doesn't show how he was harassed or discriminated against. And they argue Rutherford is entitled to government immunity.

Missouri lawmakers take on e-cigarette restrictions

Thursday, 17 April 2014 14:43 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri House and Senate have each passed bills that would prevent people younger than 18 from purchasing electronic cigarettes.
   But the legislation passed on Thursday would also exempt those products from the state's tobacco taxes, which opponents say would allow the nicotine products to be sold with fewer restrictions.
   Supporters say taxing the products would prevent the measure from passing the Republican-led Legislature. They argued that failing to pass a bill would mean children could continue buying the e-cigarettes.
   E-cigarettes are battery-powered devices used to heat a liquid nicotine solution and create vapor that is inhaled.
   The House voted 129-19 to send its bill to the Senate, where senators voted 27-4 in favor of their version. Both chambers must pass identical legislation by mid-May.
 

Man admits to burning dog in 2013

Thursday, 17 April 2014 14:33 Published in Local News

St. Louis, MO (KTRS) - A St. Louis man is headed to prison for burning a dog so badly, that the animal had to be put down.

 

Wesley Reid appeared in court Thursday to plead guilty to animal abuse and knowingly burning an animal. In August of 2013 the dog's owner reported the pet missing. That evening, a neighbor called the owner and said they found the animal in a backyard.

 

The Humane Society of Missouri said the dog, who was named Zeus, had third-degree burns on three-quarters of his body. Veterinarians said the injuries were so severe they had to euthanize the dog.

 

Reid was arrested for the crime in October of 2013.
