The sexual harassment lawsuit against the City of Chicago highlighted last week in a blog post has been dismissed.
On Monday, US District Court Judge George M. Marovich dismissed the complaint brought by a former payroll auditor, Deidre Green, who claimed that former Fire Commissioner John Brooks pursued her sexually and then targeted her for a layoff when she refused his advances. Commissioner Brooks has steadfastly denied the claims.
Green has until September 11, 2014 to file an amended complaint. Here is a copy of the dismissal order. Deidre Green v City of ChicagoDISMISSAL
