Former Wis. fire marshal wants gun, more duties

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin's demoted fire marshal wants her gun back and more responsibilities.

  Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen demoted Fire Marshal Carolyn Kelly earlier this year after she sent e-mails Van Hollen interpreted as threats to his executive staff.

  Kelly challenged the demotion.

  She reached a settlement with the Justice Department in October.

  It called for her to be reinstated as a director of criminal investigation if she agreed to go on leave beginning December 1 and retire next July.

  Kelly filed papers in Dane County Circuit Court on Thursday complaining she has not been given a gun or supervisory duties.

  She wants a judge to enforce the settlement.

  DOJ spokesman Kevin St. John says Kelly's action is groundless.
