Syracuse Settles Police Gender Discrimination Suit

February 07, 2012  | 

The Syracuse Common Council approved paying $375,000 to settle a gender-discrimination lawsuit filed in 2009 by a female officer of the Syracuse Police Department.

The complaint by Sgt. Kimberly Calverase, filed three years ago in U.S. District Court, alleged that she had been deprived of job assignments and promotions and had endured harassment and intimidation on the job. Calverase's lawsuit said the harassment and discrimination began after a personal dispute with a senior officer, Capt. Shannon Trice, reports The Post-Standard.
