A Cook County sheriff's lieutenant and her boyfriend filed a defamation lawsuit Friday against sheriff's officials and neighbors who accused them of having sex in a back-yard hot tub in 2005.
Lt. Kelly Mrozek of Lockport and her boyfriend, Mark Sumner of Orland Park, were found not guilty of public indecency in September.
In the lawsuit filed in Cook County Circuit Court, Mrozek and Sumner accused their neighbors of defamation and invasion of privacy. They alleged that the defendants joined in a "scheme to maliciously harass Lt. Mrozek" and agreed to "do anything possible, including contacting the news media, to bring about criminal charges."
Sheriff's officials and neighbors Jeff and Robbin Garrett declined to comment Friday.[snip]
At the criminal trial before Will County Judge Marilee Viola, Mrozek denied that she and Sumner had sex in the hot tub in the back yard of Mrozek's duplex.
In reaching her verdict, Viola said "common sense tells you those acts occurred." But the judge said prosecutors had failed to prove that Mrozek's back yard was a "public place" where the couple should have expected to be seen.

Sex in a hot tub .... who would have thunk
It wasn't sex, just a game of hide the sub.
The Judge had some common sense unlike the nosey meighbors
Was there snorkeling gear involved? And where are the pics?
How can we make up our minds without pics?
So every time a couple uses a hot tub, they're having sex? Really? Sounds like the judge doesn't own a hot tub but does possess a fervid, adolescent imagination.
Pics? I withhold judgement until I see if she is closer to resemblance of Ann Coulter or Rosie O'.
This is why I don't go into hot tubs, this and a$$ matter.
" I withhold judgement "
Yup. Until we find out out if she is hot (or for the ladies, if the guy is a stud)
So what if they were having sex? It's their private property, and I'm sure they don't appreciate their neighbors watching them doing whatever they do. Who the hell put them in control of the neighbors' lives?
POLICE OFFICER: What do you mean he's been exposing himself over there? I can't see his window from here.
SPINSTER: Well, if you stand up on this chair and lean way over to the left, you can.
6, 7, 8
Thank you very much. I'll be here all week. Have the veal.
My neighbors did the exact same thing .... I got totally frustrated when I couldn't find one decent knothole in the fence ....
I see from your endearing, naive remark that you don't live in the People's Republic of Ann Arbor!
IT'S HOT! TOO HOT!!
IN THE HOT TUB!
You can have sex in a hot tub?
