In 2000 the Washington State Department of Corrections settled a tort claim
with Dave P. Rotz a cook at the McNeil Island Correctional Center in
Steilacoom for $30,000. In 1996 Rotz was subject to discrimination due to
his disability and age, he was not allowed to get sick leave for his
various medical appointments. He was also retaliated against for filing a
Whistleblower complaint with the State Auditor's Office. He was placed on
leave without pay by his supervisor after requesting sick leave and was
given negative work evaluations. Plaintiff was represented by the
Washington State Human Rights Commission. See: Tort Claim No.
