A Capitol Police officer has filed suit against the department for restricting her duties and challenging her fitness for the job following the suicide of her husband.

On April 27, Judy Gordon filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, seeking damages and lost wages after the department put her on administrative duty and blocked her scheduled overtime last year.

According to a copy of the complaint obtained by The Hill, Gordon was approved for 240 hours of federally mandated Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) time, which the department provides to officers to deal with chronic or recurring conditions.
