LAPD officers awarded in gender discrimination lawsuit
Three veteran LAPD officers have been awarded $2.5 million in a retaliation and gender discrimination lawsuit that was filed against their supervisors.
This case was filed by three senior detectives in the Fugitive Warrants Section(two males and one female) and their claims go back to their training days in 1972.
The suit alleges that a former female lieutenant allegedly rebuked one of the detectives in training and she made it clear that she wanted only female detectives to be supervisors during their night-shift. She also allegedly told one of the female detectives that she wanted her to spy on the male detectives.
When one of the male detectives got into an argument with the lieutenant, she allegedly moved him to a desk assignment and took away his detective role. When two of the detectives tried to talk to the captain about these claims, they were allegedly ignored. One of the detectives was transferred out of this section and another was pressured to leave it.
