BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — A jury has awarded $1.1 million to four Beverly Hills police employees who said they faced harassment and retaliation from the police chief.
Jurors Tuesday found for three lieutenants and a civilian worker in a lawsuit naming Police Chief Sandra Spagnoli.
The suit also alleged Spagnoli made discriminatory remarks about employees’ ethnicities or religions but jurors rejected discrimination claims.
In December, however, the city paid $2.3 million to a retired captain who accused Spagnoli of making anti-Semitic remarks.
Spagnoli has denied being prejudiced but has acknowledged she was reprimanded by the city for some remarks and ordered to undergo sensitivity training.
