Sexual Harassment

A high-profile Arizona prosecutor has challenged a decision to fire him after a 30-year career. The Arizona Republic reports Juan Martinez’s appeal of his termination was released Monday by the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.

Sexual harassment, retaliation, buckets of uranium ore … It sounds like the makings of an action-packed thriller, but in reality it describes some of what’s been going on inside Grand Canyon National Park the last few years. Flagstaff journalist and author Annette McGivney recently published a story about it all in Outside magazine. In it she links decades of employee tension, management disfunction, a federal investigation, and the ousting of a Grand Canyon superintendent. She spoke with KNAU’s Ryan Heinsius about the article and the difficulties of going after a story with anonymous sources.
