Demoted Wisconsin fire marshal won't get more duties

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin's former fire marshal won't get supervisory duties.

  Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen demoted Carolyn Kelly this spring after she sent e-mails to her boss that Van Hollen interpreted as threats.

  The Justice Department agreed in October to give Kelly a supervisory title again if she agreed to take leave on December 1 and retire on July 1.

  Kelly filed a lawsuit earlier this month complaining her duties were clerical and she wasn't given training to maintain her status as a police officer.

  Dane County Circuit Judge Michael Nowakowski ruled Wednesday the Justice Department has discretion over her duties.

  The judge told the agency to give her the training she needs to retire as a police officer, though.
