Police sergeant told to ’tone down the gayness’ wins $19m in damages

A police officer in Missouri was awarded $19 million in damages after he was told to ’tone down the gayness’ if he wanted to get a promotion. Police Sgt. Keith Wildhaber filed a lawsuit against St. Louis County in 2017 alleging that he had been passed over for promotions multiple times despite receiving stellar performance reviews.
