Algood Settles With Former Police Sergeant

The City of Algood will pay $225,000 after entering into agreement to settle a lawsuit filed by a former police sergeant.

The settlement with Dana Looper includes payments for back wages, plus compensation for damages, legal fees and other related expenses she incurred.

Looper accused the city of sexual harassment, discrimination, first amendment claims and retaliation following her October 2015 termination.

Since the beginning of this lawsuit Looper has continued her education and is now a practicing attorney in Cookeville.
