City Set to Vote on Settlement of 2008 Discrimination Case

Springfield aldermen will vote next week on a proposed $85,000 settlement to end a five-year-old discrimination complaint brought by a former city employee.


The city fired Robert Horton in 2008, saying he was insubordinate and did not follow orders.


But Horton says he was fired because he was black, while a white worker was not disciplined for similar behavior.


A state investigation supported Horton’s complaint… and city officials say it’s in the best interest of taxpayers to settle, even though the city does not acknowledge wrongdoing.
