On July 28, 2004, female police officers filed a lawsuit under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e, against the police chief, the Wichita Police Department, and the City of Wichita in the United States District Court for the District of Kansas. The plaintiffs alleged that they were discriminated against and asked the court for relief in the form of damages and an injunction against future discriminatory actions. Specifically, the plaintiffs contended that they were subjected to a hostile work environment, denied promotions or the ability and opportunity to be meaningfully considered for promotions, denied proper training opportunities, and denied terms and conditions of employment that are commonly granted to similarly situated or less qualified males.

In October of 2004, the court (Judge Monti L. Belot) dismissed claims against the police chief in his official capacity and claims against the Wichita Police Department. Semsroth v. City of Wichita, 2004 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 30727 (D. Kan. 2004). The plaintiffs continued with their claims against the police chief personally and against the City of Wichita. According to the PACER docket, the court (Judge Belot) denied the plaintiff's motion for class certification on September 29, 2005. On April 27, 2007, the court (Judge Belot) granted summary judgment in favor of the defendants. Semsroth v. City of Wichita, 2007 WL 1246223 (D. Kan. 2007).

On December 22, 2008, the appellate court reversed the trial court's summary judgement with respect to the hostile work environment and retaliation claims of one of the plaintiffs but upheld the judgement against the other plaintiffs. Semroth v. City of Wichita 304 Fed.Appx. 707 (10th Cir. 2008). The parties jointly stipulated to dismissal of the case with prejudice on June 1, 2009. The case is now closed.
