LAS VEGAS (AP) - A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a woman who accused Las Vegas Township Constable John Bonaventura of sexually harassing her while she worked in his office.

Kristy Henderson’s complaint alleges Bonaventura began making sexual comments to her shortly after she appeared on a pilot episode of a reality television show and asked her to wear a mini-skirt and garters to work.

She sued last October after she was fired in July 2012.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1kgOji5 ) that in his April 17 ruling, U.S. District Judge Robert Jones sided with Bonaventura’s position that Henderson was an at-will employee who could be terminated.

Bonaventura also denied the sexual harassment allegations.

Henderson’s attorney, Allen Lichtenstein, says an appeal will be filed soon over Jones’ ruling.
