What's up with the Burbank PD?

Another lawsuit has been filed against the city of Burbank by officers (or former officers) in the city's police department. This is the second suit alone by former detective Christopher Lee Dunn. He claims in the suit filed yesterday that city officials released his personnel file and other documents to the Burbank Leader and others on the day that Dunn filed a wrongful termination and racial discrimination lawsuit against the city. In that first suit, Dunn alleged that he endured years of ridicule based on his Japanese ancestry and received less desirable assignments. In June, five Burbank police officers claimed years of race and gender-based harassment, discrimination and retaliation.
