Kansas City to Settle Race Discrimination Claim with Firefighter

After recommendation by a city attorney, a city council committee has approved an $111,000 settlement to a former Kansas City Fire Department deputy. The claim is still pending approval from the full city council.

The KCFD deputy brought a lawsuit alleging race and age discrimination and retaliation after he testified in another discrimination case. The deputy had testified on behalf of a black firefighter who had sued the city after being turned down for a promotion to captain.  The deputy alleges he was not promoted to the position of fire chief and was subsequently reassigned to shift commander.
