Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Chief Michael Berkow was dropped from the sex-discrimination lawsuit that has dogged him since he took office in Georgia last year.

A Los Angeles Superior Court ruled that there was no admissible evidence to back Los Angeles Police Department Sergeant Ya-May Christle’s allegations that Berkow promoted female officers in exchange for sex and demoted Christle for complaining about it.

Berkow said the dismissal was a relief, but it wouldn’t change his approach to his job running the Savannah department. Savannah City Manager Michael Brown said the city was ready to focus its attention elsewhere. “Now we can move beyond this,” Brown said, "and focus on the city’s public safety issues.”
