A Federal Mediator has ruled against the city of Zanesville in a sexual discrimination case involving a police officer. Arbitrator Louis Imundo Junior ordered the city of Zanesville to restore sick leave, vacation time and pay to officer Theresa Tysinger for time off. Tysinger took a leave of absence in September of last year when she became pregnant and the city would not take her off street patrol and assign her to another light duty job during her pregnancy. After the ruling, Chief Eric Lambes said he still doens't forsee a change in city policy of no light duty for pregnant officers. He said Tysinger won her case based on circumstances that applied to her specific situation. Zanesville City Law Director Scott Hillis says the City may appeal the ruling to Muskingum County Common Pleas Court.
