McNicholas & McNicholas Secures $1.1 Million Settlement on Behalf of 20-year LAPD Veteran

Posted on July 7, 2015

Partner Matthew McNicholas secured a $1.1 million settlement against the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) on behalf of David Podesta, a 20-year LAPD veteran, who was subjected to racial discrimination, retaliation, and harassment.

Mr. Podesta alleged that he was subjected to a variety of adverse employment actions after a new Captain arrived at his division and actively sought to promote racial minorities and, in the process, moved him out because he was white.

The retaliation and negative employment actions caused damage to Mr. Podesta’s professional reputation, his ability to promote, and prevented him from being selected for other units.
