    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ The Nebraska Court of Appeals has revived the lawsuits of two women who say that Omaha’s Metropolitan Utilities District discriminated against them by passing them over for a job that went to a less qualified man. Kristina Hartley and Sherri Meisinger sued the utility in 2011 after applying for a supervisory position. Although each had worked for the utility for 20-plus years and met educational and other requirements of the job, the position was given to a man they said did not meet the posted educational requirements who had only four years’ experience.
