We identified 1 publicly reported settlement that resulted in $515,000.00 in monetary compensation to victims.
Mary Ferguson, a former officer with the Sitka Police Department, filed a lawsuit in 2018 alleging that she had experienced sexual harassment and discrimination based on her gender. The Department settled her case for $515,000.
During her tenure with the Sitka Police Department, Ferguson was the only female officer. Her discrimination complaint is one of several that has been leveled against the Department this year. The settlement agreement in this case has a unique provision that will allow Ferguson to conduct, at her own cost, an independent investigation into management practices by the Sitka Police Department.
