Billings, Montana Could Owe $1M after Discrimination Suit

July 18, 2008

The city of Billings, Montana may end up paying more than $1 million after a jury sided with a police officer in a discrimination lawsuit.

The jury awarded officer Steve Feuerstein $1.3 million in July 2007. Now, Billings’ insurance carrier wants the city to pay two-thirds of that amount. Feuerstein’s attorney also has submitted a bill of almost $300,000, which could raise the city’s final tally to more than $1 million.

Alan Hulse, Montana Municipal Insurance Authority’s CEO, made the request in a letter dated July 3. The insurance carrier has asked for a response by July 30.
