Firefighter, City of St. Paul Settle Discrimination Suit for $528K

See this article by that title from the St. Paul Pioneer Press.  It begins:
The city of St. Paul has settled firefighter William Eldredge's discrimination claim for $528,432 - the second-largest employment lawsuit payout in the city's history.
"The city of St. Paul really stepped up to the plate here," said Eldredge's attorney, Adrianna Shannon, noting the city also agreed to retrain staff and supervisors about state and federal disability laws and inform employees of their rights under those laws. "This is a victory for the law itself."
Shannon read a statement from her client, in which Eldredge wrote, "The good that has come out of this protracted struggle has been not only vindication for me personally but it is also a victory for human rights, the rights of disabled people, of veterans and of workers."
