Case Summary

On June 7, 2021, a Black woman police officer filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against the District and the Metropolitan Police Department. She alleged that the Department discriminated against her on the basis of race, gender, age, and disability status. Plaintiff was represented by private counsel. In her complaint, she alleged that, starting in 2017, she experienced a pervasive culture of hyper-scrutiny, obscenity, hyper-sexuality, and unreasonable a…

On June 7, 2021, a Black woman police officer filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against the District and the Metropolitan Police Department. She alleged that the Department discriminated against her on the basis of race, gender, age, and disability status. Plaintiff was represented by private counsel. In her complaint, she alleged that, starting in 2017, she experienced a pervasive culture of hyper-scrutiny, obscenity, hyper-sexuality, and unreasonable assignments and that the Department disproportionately disciplined, denied benefits, and made denigrating comments (including on the basis of disability) towards her and other Black women. The plaintiff complained both formally and informally but did not receive help; she alleged that this reporting was leaked and used as a basis for retaliation. Ultimately, the Department terminated her in 2021.

The plaintiff raised twelve claims: six claims of disparate treatment, hostile work environment, and retaliation on the basis of race and sex under the Civil Rights Act of 1964; three race discrimination claims under the Civil Rights Act of 1866 (regarding contracts); a claim under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act; a claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 about disparate treatment on the basis of disability; and a claim for violation of the Whistleblower Protection Act due to retaliation. She sought monetary damages of not less than $250,000, for lost wages, lost reputation, lost career opportunities, mental pain and suffering, and reimbursement, as well as punitive damages. She also sought interest, costs, and fees, and to have her record cleaned and to be reinstated as a Senior Police Officer. Lastly, she asked the court to order the Metropolitan Police Department to train its supervisory officials on discrimination and to institute a policy and procedure against discrimination, retaliation, and hostile work environments. 

On September 5, 2021, D.C. moved to dismiss the original complaint. On September 22, 2022, the plaintiff filed an amended complaint adding nine other experienced Black women police officers as plaintiffs. The new plaintiffs also complained of discrimination, firing, demotion, involuntary transfer, and attempts to bully them into quitting. They each joined various of the original twelve claims and demanded at least $250,000 in compensatory damages per plaintiff. The individual plaintiffs sought to represent the class of similarly situated Black woman police officers employed by the Department beginning in January 1, 2011 (up to 700 class members).

On December 6, 2021, D.C. moved to partially dismiss the amended complaint. On June 13, 2022, plaintiffs filed a second amended complaint adding a claim that one of the individual plaintiffs was unfairly denied leave, in violation of the Family Medical Leave Act. On July 22, 2022, D.C. moved to partially dismiss the second amended complaint, arguing that the plaintiffs had failed to exhaust their other remedies, that the claims were untimely and time-barred, and that some allegations failed to state a claim. D.C. also sought partial summary judgment, arguing that the claims would all eventually fail on the merits. This motion remains pending as of May 2023.
