Tony Hershey, who resigned as a deputy district attorney under Colleen Truden, is suing her, alleging she and her top assistant forced him out.The lawsuit was filed in Pitkin County District Court on Thursday. It says Hershey was reprimanded by Assistant District Attorney Vince Felletter, acting under Trudens orders, for discussing matters about pending prosecutions with defense attorneys who (Truden) believed were behind the recall effort, although the discussions were related to his duties as a prosecutor.In his resignation letter, Hershey criticized his former boss for allegedly fostering an atmosphere of abuse, disrespect and outright hostility. Truden is facing a recall election after former employees made scores of complaints against her.
A local family could end up on national television on a show called Wife Swap, in which parents from two households swap places for 10 days to see how the other half lives.The premise of Wife Swap is that one parent from each household swaps places for 10 days to experience how another family runs their lives, show spokesman Michael Raptis said.In the first week of the swap, the wives move in with their new family and adopt their very different lifestyle. They agree to follow a manual written by the departing wife that sets out the rules of their new household: how they parent, shop, do the house work, manage their budgets and their social life.In the second week, everything changes. The new wives take charge, introducing their own set of rules and running the household their way.At the end of the show, the two couples meet for the first time. Both couples make a frank assessment of each other and talk about what theyve learned from the experience.
