The sheriff’s deputy who arrested actor Mel Gibson in 2006 for DUI is allowed to take the case to trial.
Deputy James Mee says supervisors requested that he took 4 pages out of his report on Gibson, who allegedly made anti-Semitic remarks.
Mee’s attorneys claim that since then their client, who is Jewish, has overlooked for promotions and had his job performance unfairly scrutinized.
Sheriff’s department attorneys say Mee waited too long to file his suit, but Los Angeles Superior Court Judge John A. Kronstadt rejected that claim and allowed the case to go to court.
“When considering the evidence, a jury could easily see the discrimination, retaliation and harassment James Mee suffered at the Sheriff’s Department,” his attorney Etan Z. Lorant said.
