PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A tort claim says a Portland police sergeant who received a city award last year recognizing her fight against sexism now intends to sue the city alleging discrimination and retaliation.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Liani Reyna alleges in the notice that she continues to "experience an on-going pattern and practice severe and pervasive discrimination."
The claim lists nearly four pages of alleged incidents, the most recent in December when Reyna said she was notified she didn't pass the lieutenant's test. Reyna said the denial of the promotion was due to her reporting and multiple complaints of discrimination.
Oregon law requires a claim notice before someone can file a lawsuit against a public agency.
