CA Officer Awarded $4.8 Million in Disability Discrimination Suit

October 09, 2017  | 

A Los Angeles jury has awarded $4.8 million to a former South Pasadena police officer who alleged he was fired by the city because of a disability.

After a two-week trial, the jury on Thursday found unanimously in favor of Timothy Patrick Green, an 18-year veteran who was dismissed from the Police Department in 2013.

Green’s lawsuit said the reason given for his dismissal, dishonesty, was untrue and that the real reason was discrimination based on his attention-deficit/hyper-active disorder.

South Pasadena City Atty. Teresa L. Highsmith did not return a call from The Times.

Former Police Chief Joseph Payne, who retired before Green’s dismissal, testified on his behalf, saying he was “a good officer, a good man, perhaps the best cop in the department at community policing,” said Green’s attorney, Vincent Miller.
