Another in the string of lawsuits spawned by the brief but eventful tenure of former Eureka Police Chief Garr Nielsen as been settled. EPD staffer Suzie Owsley has agreed to drop her harassment suit against the city in exchange for $150,000 cash plus an estimated $50,000 in leave accruals she used during the year she was out on stress leave. The cash portion of the settlement will be paid by the city’s insurer. As the Times-Standard article notes, Nielsen’s suit against the city is still pending. Awesome!
