City of Huntington
Huntington Police officer Stephanie Swann filed a gender discrimination lawsuit against the city. She claimed her colleagues repeated references to Swann using sexually explicit words and circulated a sexually explicit drawing of her. The lawsuit also alleged fellow officers belittled her and did not allow her to do certain police work because she is a woman. She also claimed she had been denied the chance for professional advancement due to the conduct. Swann named Police Chief Arthur Baumgardner as a defendant for failing to stop the harassment. The city of Huntington has agreed to pay Swann a $125,000 settlement that will be paid by the city's liability insurance company. (Aug-18-06) [
