Judge Dismissed SD Police Discrimination Lawsuit



Bookmark and Share

A federal judge has dismissed a claim by a former Rapid City police officer who said he suffered discrimination and harassment.
 
Rosebud Sioux Tribe member Glen Yellow Robe was a 22 ½-year veteran of the police department when he was fired in May 2007. Yellow Robe was the department's alcohol compliance officer, and officials had warned him that his wife's purchase of a liquor store would pose a conflict of interest.
 
Yellow Robe later sued, claiming age discrimination and saying he had endured years of racial discrimination and harassment. U.S. District Judge Jeffrey Viken ruled that Yellow Robe's own testimony contradicted some of his assertions.
 
Yellow Robe's attorneys declined comment. Police Chief Steve Allender says he's pleased with the ruling.
