$60,000 Tort Claim Settlement In Washington Employee Discrimination Suit

In 1999 the Washington State Department of Corrections settled a tort claim
with Deborah J. Landberg an employee at DOC headquarters for discrimination
because of her medical condition. In 1997 the plaintiff had tried to come
back to work after being on sick leave but the Department of Corrections
was not accommodating her. They did not give her accrued sick or vacation
time while she was on leave or allow her to shift days/hours of her work to
attend medical appointments. In 1998 Landberg filed a tort claim against
Peggy Smith, Gina Grandberry, and Margaret Vonheeder of DOC and won her
claim. Plaintiff was represented by Olympia attorney Mary E. McKnew,
Attorney At Law. See: Tort Claim No.DRM 31034560-01.
