WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - One of the three women who filed a sex discrimination lawsuit against the West Des Moines police chief has agreed to a $30,000 settlement.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/2db5jIh ) the city council approved the settlement with former animal control officer Carol Gass on Monday.

But the lawsuit against Police Chief Shaun LaDue will continue moving forward.

The two other women who filed the lawsuit say LaDue handed out unwarranted discipline or promoted less qualified men. Their trial is set to begin Oct. 31.

City officials have said they didn’t find evidence to support the complaints.
