Doña Ana County has settled a discrimination lawsuit with a former employee for almost half-a-million dollars
The jury on Thursday evening awarded more than $1 million in damages to Kim Stewart, the former Doña Ana County internal affairs investigator who sued the county over alleged retaliation by its management, ending a more than four-year legal battle between Stewart and county officials.
Former county internal affairs investigator Kim Stewart alleged she was fired from the county after concluding that another employee - then-Animal Control Supervisor Curtis Childress - was guilty of racial discrimination against two personnel he managed, according to the lawsuit.
