The Dallas City Council has agreed to pay two female firefighters, Cheryl Hill and Sherrie Lopez, a total of $225,000 to settle their lawsuits. The women had filed suits for sexual harassment in September- and in Lopez’s case, racial discrimination- while working as Fire-Rescue employees.

The city settled another sexual harassment case in June for $30,000, within the same Fire-Rescue department. Still pending in federal court is yet another sexual harassment lawsuit, filed by former employee Leanne Siri-Edwards, once the highest ranking female civilian in the department.
