High Court Says Local Trooper Immune from Lawsuit

WEST MEMPHIS, AR - The Arkansas Supreme Court says a state police trooper accused of groping a motorist should be immune from a lawsuit.

The court says there wasn't enough evidence to show Trooper Dennis Simons broke the law.  The court ruling came in a lawsuit filed against the officer by a female motorist after a traffic stop.
