In the Ironton Tribune

Rist and city reach a tentative agreement

Civil rights trial was to have begun in Cincinnati later this month
Ironton Police officer Beth Rist and the city have reached a tentative settlement in Ristís civil rights lawsuit against the city, thus averting a trial that was scheduled for Nov. 14 in U.S. District Court in Cincinnati.

Ken Harris, attorney for the city, said Judge Michael Barrett has signed a conditional order in the case. The terms of the agreement will likely not be available for two weeks, pending the signatures of principal parties involved, Harris said.

Harris said he could not comment further because Rist and others had not yet signed the agreement. Rist and her attorney, Marc Mezibov were contacted by telephone but were not available for comment.

Rist filed the lawsuit against the city in June 2010. She claimed she was fired from the police department because of her gender and in retaliation for her documented opposition to what she has alleged was discriminatory treatment.

Rist was fired as a police officer in 2008 after she admitted she wrote a traffic ticketto someon other than the driver of the vehicle. She pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of falsification and was placed on probation. She fought her dismissal by filing a union grievance.

The arbitrator sided with Rist but city leaders appealed that decision in Lawrence County Common Pleas Court. Visiting Judge Fred Crow sided with the city and the Fourth District Court of Appeals upheld the lower court ruling. In December 2010, Rist appealed to the Ohio Supreme Court, which decided not to hear the case. She also filed the civil rights suit in federal court.

Rist successfully ran for city council in 2008 but decided not to run for mayor earlier this year.

This is Ristís second lawsuit against the city. She filed her first suit against the city in 2001, claiming sexual harassment and a hostile work environment. That suit was settled out of court. She was hired by the city as a police officer in 1996, the departmentís first female.

A lot of people going down. That has been said over and over. Just wait coming soon then nothing. Even now with Beth settling. So until it happens those in the know do not know as much as they think. It has been rumored for a long time about that but until something more is done it is just rumors.

It all is prob. True i heard that collins and some att. Here in good ol i town r u drug activity as well ....... Also hear say but if u got money or drugs u can get by with anything in this town just have to have the right connection.......i do think that if all of this turns out to be in fact true......then i think all the couties offices need to be looked into very Closley and they all need to be punished with proper punishment not just lose there place in office....and usually thats all that happends to them because of who they once was.......but u let a person in the community get caught for things like this and they go to jail or prision..........hell they cant say they dnt get out and drink and do illegal things they just know where to go and when knowin they wont be caught!!!!!!!!! I think this place could use a real overhaul in the systems....

Well, crap--just wait like we all do. How ever anyone sees this, just like above. said, why would the city wait one week before it is all going to open court and then settle.

Summary Judgement is public record. The officers named in this document will be investigated as officer Rist was. The attorney General is investigating these men and thanks to someone finally standing up, this will be looked into.

Nobody at IPD is being investigated because no criminal acts were committed. Beth was the only criminal at IPD and she got caught. I'm not sure what is so hard to understand about that. She pled guilty. She admitted to committing a criminal act and was sentenced to probation as well as dismissed from her position at IPD. It is hilarious that people actually believe that the Ohio State Attorney General's office is investigating IPD for these garbage allegations made by Rist and her attorney. There really are some dreamers out there. I can't wait for the movie and book to be released. Right.

I don't know about Collier being investigated but if he is it would not be by OSHP. They are a traffic agency, not an investigative crew. Maybe BCI or the Ohio Investigative Unit would handle something like that. As for Rist, I can't wait until the amount of her so called gold mine settlement comes out. I'm quite sure the amount will be laughable. Chief Carey and Mayor Re-elect Blankenship can rest easy. She's gone.

Again more wait and see. Along with the threats of people who do not agree with Beth and things being said with a Topix lawsuit.
A summary judgement is public record but things were not proved in court. Strange how everything is facts but still have to wait for the info to be proved.
There is nothing slanderous on this post to be included in a TOPIX LAWSUIT. hahahahahahahaha
