Settlements
Year Description Outcome
2021

The City of Dubuque will pay a $1.8 million settlement in a gender discrimination lawsuit after a former police captain alleged that the city and police chief created a culture of sexism within the department.

Abby Simon brought a suit against the city and Chief Mark Dalsing in 2019. Simon sued on grounds of gender discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. Additionally, Simon expressed in the lawsuit that she was passed over in 2016 and 2017 for promotion to captain although she had better test and interview scores than the men who were promoted. 

Compensation
$1,800,000.00
