5 Armenian officers sue Glendale Police Department, alleging racial discrimination
Officers John Balian and Robert Parseghian; Sgts. Vahak Mardikian and Tigran Topadzhikyan; and former Officer Benny Simonzad filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court last week, alleging myriad incidents of on-the-job discrimination and harassment.
Today, City Atty. Scott Howard rebuffed the claims made in the lawsuit, but said officials were still reviewing the case in its entirety. The Glendale News Press has the full story.
