Seven former Elkhorn police officers don't have an automatic right to a job with the city of Omaha, a judge said on Tuesday. A judge dismissed a case involving seven Elkhorn police officers who sued the city of Omaha for their jobs. The judge said the seven officers "have not demonstrated legitimate claim to employment by Omaha on or after March 1, 2007."

March 1 is when the courts officially allowed Omaha to annex the city of Elkhorn.

The ruling stated that Omaha did not violate the state constitution by denying the seven officers jobs within the Omaha Police Department.

A separate lawsuit against Omaha by former Elkhorn Police Chief Tim Dempsey is still pending.
