Miles City, MT

Miles City, MT: (Apr-23-07) Police Chief Lissa Power filed a complaint with the Montana Human Rights Commission, accusing former mayor Butch Grenz of gender discrimination and retaliation in violation of federal and state civil rights laws between 2004 and 2006, reaffirming the allegations of her federal lawsuit filed in October 2006. The suit claimed that Miles City discriminated against Power because she is a woman and Mayor Grenz retaliated against her for speaking publicly on matters of public concern; specifically, the misconduct of Grenz and failures of other public officials to address and correct that misconduct. Power claimed that she faced defamation and accused the city of negligence in supervising the conduct of Grenz. In a settlement reached, Miles City agreed to pay Power $135,000. Grenz stepped down from the mayor's post in April 2006, following concerns expressed by the Miles City Council over Power's complaint and others. [GREAT FALLS TRIBUNE: GENDER DISCRIMINATION]
