Weekly Poll
Should Ethnobotanica be allowed to open a medical marijuana dispensary in Nipomo?

Yes. The Board of Supervisors bought into law enforcement's bogus scare tactics and made the wrong decision.
They should be allowed to open their dispensary, but not in Nipomo. That place has enough problems as it is.
No. The county should limit marijuana availability to mobile delivery services only.
Ban all marijuana! I've watched Reefer Madness enough times to know it's dangerous!

Judge tosses Paso police harassment suit

By PATRICK M. KLEMZ

The city of Paso Robles received notice last week that Judge Jac Crawford had recently dismissed a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against the city by fired police sergeant Brennan Lux.

Crawford dismissed the suit because Lux failed to promptly comply with discovery requests made by Paso Robles City Attorney Iris Yang. The dismissal order awards costs to the city in addition to $1,100 sanctions that Lux must pay to the court.

Lux, now a sergeant with the King City Police Department, didn’t return phone calls from New Times as of press time.

In a complaint filed in state court on May 29, 2012, Lux alleged that former Police Chief Lisa Solomon made numerous uninvited sexual advances toward him, a trend that allegedly culminated in Solomon grabbing his penis in a hot tub during a 2008 team-building retreat. Lux further alleged that Solomon later retaliated against him with arbitrary disciplinary actions for spurning her advances.

The department terminated Lux on Nov. 22, 2011. Solomon herself resigned a few months later, a move coinciding with this and other reports of the police chief’s alleged misdeeds becoming public.

The city never filed a detailed response to the allegations levied by Lux because of the plaintiff’s discovery lapse. Therefore, this story remains completely one-sided.

Yang declined to comment on the dismissal.
