Merced County, CA

Merced County, CA: (Apr-06-07) A lawsuit was filed by five female officers against Sheriff Mark Pazin and Merced County alleging that the Sheriff discriminated against the female correctional officers. The suit sought $15 million and claimed the female officers were treated as second class citizens by the department and were denied certain shifts and breaks they deserved. Though Sheriff Pazin denied all of the allegations brought against him, Merced County agreed to pay $850,000 to settle the gender discrimination lawsuit. The settlement will be paid by a California state insurance pool and will allegedly have little or no impact on the county's general fund. [ABC NEWS: OFFICERS DISCRIMINATION]
