B-4MetrO THE CINCINNATI FNQITRER Sunday, September 22, 1991 be fooled; be banned Judges: Public could look-alike car should SAVE 30 on silver replating! Bench marks he copied the Ferraris to help sell his fiberglass "kit car" bodies, and that intent was fatal to his appeal. NO DEGREE REQUIRED: National City Bank of Cleveland said it didn't hire college graduates as tellers because they found it unchallenging and quickly quit. So when Sol Stein, a 58-year-old college graduate and retired Internal Revenue Service employee, applied, he was rejected. He sued, saying the college degree policy was pretext for illegal age discrimination. Federal law bars discrimination against people between the ages of 40 and 70. Stein lost, and the Sixth Circuit affirmed the verdict, calling the bank's policy a legitimate business practice to avoid high turnover. I H v ?! :;. yyyyy&y&t - ' M - ' , - . : Possible victim buried THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AKRON, Ohio The remains of a man believed to be Jeffrey Dahmer's first victim were interred Saturday in a private ceremony. The family of Steven Hicks held services at the St. Francis De Salles church in Akron. The remains were buried at Greensburg Cemetery after the service. About 114 people attended a brief ceremony at the cemetery. Bone fragments identified as Hicks' were found scattered near Dahmer's boyhood home in Bath Township in suburban Akron this summer, after Dah-mer was arrested in Milwaukee and confessed to a series of slayings. Hicks' father, Richard Hicks, has complained that not all of the bone fragments have been returned to the family for burial. A piece of vertebrae and a molar have been retained for further forensic analysis, investigators have said. Hicks, 18, is believed to be the first of a string of victims allegedly killed by Dahmer, who awaits a Jan. 27 trial in Milwaukee. Dahmer has admitted killing 17 men and boys, including Hicks, but has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to the murder charges filed there. No plea has been entered to the murder charge filed in Ohio. Decisions by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit affect cases from Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan and Tennessee. The court is one of 13 federal circuit courts, and its rulings usually stand because few cases are reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court. BY BEN L. KAUFMAN The Cincinnati Enquirer If you went shopping for a costly Ferrari sports car, would you be fooled by an $8,500 replica? Judges John Feikens and James Ryan said the risk was too great, and they affirmed a lower court ban on further production of the look-alikes. But Judge Cornelia Kennedy dissented, said it was highly unlikely that anyone ready to spend $230,000 on a Ferrari Testarossa Coupe or $2 million on a Ferrari Daytona Spider would make such a mistake. The issue was whether Ferrari exterior shapes were so distinctive and recognizable as Ferraris that they enjoyed the protection of an unregistered trademark. They were, the court majority said, and Carl Roberts' replicas were trademark infringement. A Roberts car involved an $8,500 reinforced fiberglass body on the undercarriage from a Ponti-ac Fiero or Chevrolet Corvette. It was no accident that a Roberts Miami Spyder or Miami Coupe was virtually identical to a Ferrari. Roberts built them as stunt cars for the television series Miami Vice to save far costlier Ferraris from unnecessary damage. Roberts never claimed his replicas were Ferraris. He did, however, concede that FIRED FOR POLITICS: Carter County's school board violated Kentucky law and the First Amendment in June, 1989, when it refused to renew the annual contracts of five employees for partisan reasons. Now they can pursue their suit for damages. All five opposed winning board members during a recent election, and despite the recommendation of the superintendent, they were not rehired. The board said it could not be sued because it was entitled to the qualified immunity granted to public employees who were not "plainly incompetent" or "who knowingly violate the law." A trial judge in Kentucky and the Sixth Circuit rejected that reasoning: Employees have a First Amendment right to express their political views. Kentucky law says school boards cannot reject a superintendent's personnel recommendation unless the individual is morally or educationally unfit for the job.

IRS SUED: Under the Equal Access to Justice Act, anyone who wins a suit against the federal government also can seek attorneys' fees. When Michigan dentist Richard A. Vaughn sued Internal Revenue Service agent Frederick G. Baldwin for the return of his documents, the IRS complied and Vaughn sought his lawyer's payment from the IRS. A judge said no, and the Sixth Circuit agreed because Vaughn sued Baldwin as an individual rather than in his official capacity as an IRS employee.
