$50,000 Settlement in California Guard’s Employment Discrimination, Retaliation Lawsuit

The California Department of Corrections paid $50,000 to settle the lawsuit of James Young for employment discrimination and retaliation.

On October 13, 2004, Young testified at a court hearing for coworker Julie Nicholson about a sexual harassment lawsuit she filed against the Department of Corrections in Los Angeles. In that case Nicholson had charged correctional officer Manclow with sexual harassment.

In his complaint, Young alleged that because of his testimony at the Nicholson case, he received a “letter of reprimand” in his employment file for “providing documentary evidence in the Nicholson, Manclow deposition” and because he had “improperly compiled documentation in violation of D.O.C. policy.”

Young accepted settlement on September 20, 2006. He was represented by Sherman Oaks attorney Marcus A. Mancini.
