    MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) - A woman has lost the age and sex discrimination lawsuit she'd filed against Mason City.

    Ann Butcher is a former city employee who had alleged bias by the city after she was not hired as an administrative assistant at the Police Department. Butcher says she believed her not being hired was retaliation for her asking for a pay raise.

    The Mason City Globe Gazette reports that a Cerro Gordo County jury returned the verdict on Monday, after a trial that took about two weeks.
