Smithton lawsuit may be settled

A sexual harassment lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court by a female police officer against the village of Smithton soon may end with a financial settlement.

Carol Ann Davis, a Smithton patrol officer since 2004, had accused Mayor Lloyd Bush of sexual harassment, according to court records.

Bush was initially named in the federal lawsuit but the village attorney, Charles Pierce, said all claims against Bush have been dismissed.

Bush referred all questions about the suit and possible settlement to Pierce. Read more

You people of Smithton, in your own small ways with a Mayor who before Bush ran your small town in the ground and literally ran Bush out of town as well. This suit brought against Bush is so predictable. If it were not for this suit, it would have been something else just as damming. Gosh, could the old guard have had something to do with any of this? Hmmm, makes you wonder?

Shames on all of us for letting it go this far. Let Bush do his job and get on with it.

Hey Smithton Resident, Rams...MNF?? Your comments are so off the wall. What really do St. Louis crime rates have to do with anything Deano said in his comments? Wow, you must have seen the news to get that crime stat about St. Louis. Now there's a shocker.

Everything Deano said in his comments sound right on target.
