Nashville Police Officer Files Suit Claiming City Retaliated Over Her Rape Accusation

A Nashville police officer filed a federal discrimination lawsuit Friday against the Metro Nashville government and a police department commander, alleging the government and commander retaliated against her after she accused another officer of sexually assaulting her. The Tennessean reports that Officer Monica Blake’s lawsuit also claims that Commander Janet Pardue discriminated against her by dealing a more severe punishment to Blake than what was given to other white, male officers for the same infraction.
