Lawsuit story addendum

A quick update to this story, which documents several lawsuits employees have filed against the city of Tracy for alleged unfair employment practices: Police Chief Janet Thiessen, whom is named in the latest suit brought by Capt. John Espinoza, was out of town last week and didn't receive my message seeking comment until after the story was published. So apologies to the chief. Still, my bet is there wouldn't have been much comment. My experience is that government agencies tend to keep a pretty tight lip when it comes to lawsuits and how they're handled and challenged.

So the chief wanted to say she was upset that you mentioned her in a story without asking for the comment she wouldn't have been able to give?
