Detective Sues St. Louis Police Department for Alleged Gender Discrimination

A city detective filed suit today against the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department alleging that a supervisor told her to take her clothes off and then retaliated against her when she complained about the behavior.

The lawsuit was filed in St. Louis City Circuit Court by detective Taylor Hosna, who is gay, and who is one of only two gay detectives in the department’s juvenile division, according to her lawsuit.
