$475,000 Settlement in Sexual Harassment and Disparate Treatment Case

Attorneys Mark K. Davis and Aubrie Hicks secured a settlement on behalf of their client, a federal agent, against the United States Department of Homeland Security.  The lawsuit was filed in December 2018 and alleged the federal government treated female agents less favorably in the terms and conditions of their employment as law enforcement offices.  The lawsuit also alleged that the government allowed males to engage in ongoing sexual harassment against female agents and employees because of their gender.  The case was scheduled for a jury trial in federal court on September 23, 2019.
