SLC Council limits mayor’s options for inland port lawsuit, Provo festival adds nonbias policy but bars LGBT groups, former detective sues police for retaliation

The Salt Lake City Council forbids Mayor Jackie Biskupski from suing over the inland port deal — unless she gets its permission first. The America’s Freedom Festival in Provo enacts a nondiscrimination policy, and then, once again, rejects LGBT parade entries, causing an uproar that led to a sit-down at which the groups reached a compromise. And a former police detective sues the department that fired her, saying she was axed in retaliation for whistleblowing on a Salt Lake County Attorney.

At 9 a.m. Friday, Salt Lake Tribune reporters Jessica Miller and Lee Davidson, columnist Holly Richardson and editorial page editor George Pyle join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.
