Federal Judge to Face Trial Over Retaliation Claim

  • Photo
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - A judge is ordering a trial to determine whether U.S. District Judge Stephanie Rose and an aide retaliated against a subordinate when Rose was the top federal prosecutor in Cedar Rapids.

U.S. Senior Judge Richard Kopf rejected the Department of Justice's motion to dismiss the lawsuit brought by former assistant U.S. Attorney Martha Fagg.

Thursday's ruling is a setback for Rose, who became the nation's youngest federal judge at 40 last year.

Rose became the U.S. Attorney for Iowa's Northern District in 2009. Soon, she hired 35-year-old Teresa Baumann as a top aide and removed the office's 60-year-old civil chief.

Fagg says she raised concerns about age discrimination, and faced months of retaliation that ultimately resulted in her termination.

The government argues Fagg's termination was justified for behavioral problems.
