Transgender Connecticut police officer fired, city denies harassment

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 05:38
By Richard Weizel MILFORD Conn. (Reuters) - A transgender Middletown, Connecticut, police officer who complained for more than a year she had been the target of harassment by fellow officers has been fired, the city's mayor said on Monday, adding the action was not the result of the gender change. The officer, who was hired seven years ago by the Middletown Police Department as Frank Quaranta and became Francesca Quaranta after a sex change operation two years ago, submitted complaints last year to the city and the state's human rights commission that fellow officers had made disparaging comments that she said created a hostile work environment. Quaranta said she would fight her termination, which she described as "discrimination because of gender identity." Middletown Mayor Daniel Drew said on Monday the officer was fired because she failed a fitness-for-duty evaluation earlier this year, refused to take another exam this month and had run out of paid leave.

Lawyer says Sandusky hired him for new appeal in Penn State sex case

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 05:37

Jerry Sandusky leaves the Centre County Courthouse after his sentencing in his child sex abuse case in BellefonteBy David DeKok HARRISBURG Pa. (Reuters) - Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky has hired a new lawyer to pursue another appeal of his conviction on 45 counts of child sex abuse, the attorney said on Monday. Al Lindsay, who leads the Pittsburgh area firm of Lindsay Law Firm, said he plans to file the appeal in the same court in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, where Sandusky, now 70, was sentenced in 2012 to 30 to 60 years in prison. Lindsay would not go into detail about the grounds for a new appeal, although legal experts said that under the Pennsylvania Post-Conviction Relief Act, a claim of ineffective legal counsel is one of the few roads open to Sandusky. “I got a call.” The deadline for filing the appeal is a year from April 2, the date on which the Pennsylvania Supreme Court shut down the former coach’s original round of appeals.

L'Oreal settles over skin care ads that U.S. termed deceptive

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 05:16
By Diane Bartz WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Cosmetics maker L'Oreal USA has agreed to settle U.S. complaints that its advertisements for skin care products Lancome Genifique and L'Oreal Paris Youth Code were deceptive, the Federal Trade Commission said on Monday. Under the settlement L'Oreal USA, a subsidiary of L'Oreal SA, is barred from making claims about the products that have not been substantiated by scientific proof, the FTC said. In its complaint, the U.S. agency said L'Oreal claimed the Genifique line of products would cause "visibly younger skin in just 7 days" by prompting genes to "stimulate the production of youth proteins." The ads for the Genifique products, which cost between $60 and $132, ran from about February 2009 to April 2013. The FTC alleged that L'Oreal had no studies to back up its assertions.
