Federal Judge Denies Omaha’s Request for a New Discrimination Trial

OMAHA, Nebraska (Nebraska) — This is another victory for the Omaha police captain in her discrimination lawsuit against the city.

On Tuesday, a federal judge denied the city’s request for a new trial. Cathy Belcastro-Gonzalez said the Omaha police chief beat her twice for a promotion.

The boss said it was based on her poor performance.

In September, a federal jury sided with her and awarded her $680,000 in lost wages, saying she was the target of retaliatory discrimination.

As part of the latest ruling, a federal judge also ordered the city to pay $280,000 in legal fees.
