UMATILLA — A federal civil rights claim can proceed against a former Umatilla police sergeant accused of failing to do much of anything to investigate the sexual assault of a 13-year-old girl because of her gender.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Andrew Hallman ruled Monday, Oct. 16, the discrimination claim can go to trial and former Sgt. Bill Wright isn’t protected at this stage in the case by qualified immunity.
