(Neb.)-Lawsuit Against Scottsbluff Ex-Police Chief Dismissed

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 03/06/2014 07:38 AM
     LINCOLN, Neb. (ASSOCIATED PRESS) - A judge has dismissed a federal lawsuit filed by a woman against the city of Scottsbluff and its now former police chief.
     U.S. District Judge Richard Kopf said in a ruling issued Tuesday that Tamara Villanueva had failed to prove the elements of her various claims.
     Villanueva had sued the city and then-Police Chief Alex Moreno in October 2011, alleging that her rights to equal protection and due process were violated because of her affair with Moreno. He acknowledged the affair and eventually resigned on Oct. 1, 2012.
     The lawsuit says Villanueva told Moreno in August 2009 that she'd been a victim of domestic assault and later reported the same to another department officer. The lawsuit says neither Moreno nor the other officer made written reports.
