This request is grounds for firing

Asking for hookers is grounds for firing. That's the gist of a ruling from an Iowa judge, who denies Neil Jorgensen's claim he was unjustly fired. He had worked at the Riverside Casino and Golf Resort and was given a free night's stay to mark a year's employment. Hotel managers say he repeatedly called, asking for a hooker. When hotel workers went to his room to ask that he stop calling, a resort official testified Jorgensen answered the door in the nude. He was fired the next day. Jorgensen's claim for unemployment benefits was denied.
