    Boy, talk about a limited amount of info---!

    This one seemed taylor made for media - minority, female, police ---.

    I would have to have a whole heap more info, and particularly the OTHER SIDE'S rendetion of this fiasco, before making a judgment call.

    Just on that short paragraph, yes and no.

    One, the use of pornography at work can be the basis for a sexual harassment type lawsuit or discrimination claim.

    Retaliation for her complaint is blatantly illegal.

    I can't see where being female or Hispanic would have any bearing on the suit. No does she have a right to privacy when talking on a work provided telephone or using a work provided computer. (sorry folks, it your employer is paying for your electronic devices, YOU have NO expectation of privacy!)

    >Dotson's attorney says the police department began listening in on her private conversations and wrote her up on charges in an attempt to get her suspended. Her attorney says it was all retaliation for making the complaint.

    If they tapped her phone without a warrant then the city got off cheap.

    The article simply says "private conversations" not "tapped phone conversations".

    You are assuming facts not in evidence.
