Same Song, Umpteenth Verse - No Discrimination, Retaliation Worth $2 Million


This time it was Ithaca police officer Chris Miller who lost his claim that Ithaca discriminated against him and other non-minority officers in favor of minority policemen.  That complaint did not fly with the jury, but his allegation that he was retaliated against for making it did, two million dollars worth.  City to pay $2 million in discrimination case.

As always there is a lot more to this case than is covered in the brief article reporting on the jury's verdict. The Cornell Daily Sun did a four part story on the background of Miller's claim and the assertions made by him, some of which were excluded by the trial court. See part one and two here, and part three and four here.
