Sacramento Bee

The state has agreed to pay $750,000 to settle a 2005 lawsuit that details allegations of rampant sexual and racial harassment within a Sacramento investigative unit of the Medical Board of California.

The lawsuit alleges that two former members of the unit faced harassment and retaliation at the workplace in part because of concerns they raised about the behavior of a supervising investigator in the department.
