Suit Involving Byrnes Mill Police Chief Dismissed

22 Oct

Update: As was pointed out in the comments, and can be seen here, Amanda Blake died in early June.

I, alone among local correspondents, reported back in March about the lawsuit filed by officer Amanda Blake against the city of Bolivar, Missouri, in which she alleged sex discrimination. This suit is relevant to us because the then-chief of the Bolivar police, Charles Michael Seibert, was hired early this year to be chief in Byrnes Mill. Well, to provide an update, the suit was dismissed at the request of the plaintiff in August, according to Casenet. I don’t know if this means there was a settlement; nothing of the sort has been reported in the Bolivar newspaper that I can find. This kind of thing can take some time to hit the newspaper, though. It could also mean that Blake gave up on her suit.
