Lawsuit Says Omaha Inspector Sought Sexual Favors

omaha(AP) — An Omaha property owner is suing the city of Omaha and one of its code inspectors, alleging the inspector offered leniency on her code violations in exchange for sexual favors.

The woman claims in the federal lawsuit that her north Omaha rental properties were targeted for code violations and excessive fines by the inspector when she refused his advances.

The inspector is also named in a separate lawsuit by Omaha property owners who make similar allegations. Omaha attorney Jason Bruno represents the property owners in both lawsuits. He says his clients have been in negotiations with the city to fix the problems outlined in the claims.
