Former Prosecutor Settles

The woman who sued former Hamilton county prosecutor Mike Allen for sexual harrassment wants a judge to keep the case in court.

Rebecca Collins asked a federal court "not" to throw out her case against the "county" -- even though Allen has settled.

Allen left office and agreed to pay his former assistant prosecutor 45-thousand dollars plus attorney fees. But Collins still wants to sue Hamilton County Commissioners for what she calls their failure to protect her.

She says her claim is bolstered by the fact that the new prosecutor, Joe Deters, in effect fired her.
