TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Tucson officials are dropping their appeal of a judge’s ruling overturning a police officer’s demotion for sending sexually explicit videos and photos of herself in partial uniform to another officer.

The Arizona Daily Star reports (http://bit.ly/1G6DkDp) that the city’s Civil Service Commission voted 3-2 to not fight a Pima County Superior Court ruling to restore Lt. Diana Lopez’s rank.

Lopez was demoted to sergeant in November 2012 after she shared the videos and a sexually provocative photo of her in her police uniform shirt with a subordinate officer.

The department suspended the subordinate officer for sharing them with fellow officers.

The judge ruled in May that Lopez was not given fair notice that her conduct was prohibited and that she could be disciplined.

Lopez returned to lieutenant duties in August.
