A detective with the Grenada Police Department recently got a large settlement from the city in a reverse discrimination lawsuit.
Detective Lieutenant Dan Brown was awarded $50,000 and a promotion in a reverse discrimination lawsuit, according to documents released by his attorney, Jim Waide of Tupelo.
The city accepted an agreed judgment made by Brown.
According to court documents, a lesser-qualified black applicant was promoted ahead of Brown, who is white.
Promotions for captain, lieutenant and sergeant came open in October 2011 when Capt. John Wayne Haddock was killed in the line of duty.
