Two Firefighters Formally File Lawsuit Against City

Explosive charges about obscene and discriminatory
behavior in the Westbrook Fire Department have been made public for the first
time in a lawsuit filed last week against the city by two female firefighters. A
lawsuit and request for a jury trial, filed in Cumberland County Superior Court,
claims offensive conduct in the department, including masturbation in the fire
station and inappropriate touching of victims while being transported in a
rescue vehicle.
The PPH also reported on this development, though their tardiness on the story earned them a knuckle-rapping by Maine media critic Al Diamon.

Good thing I don't do this for a living, because I'm only, what, more than two weeks slow with this post.
