Group of POC correctional officers received a $1.5 million-dollar settlement citing racial discrimination after they were banned from guarding Derek Chauvin

As #DerekChauvin spends the majority of the rest of his life behind bars, eight correctional officers of color at his prison just scored a massive payday following a recent lawsuit judgement. It was just confirmed that a group of POC correctional officers received a $1.5 million-dollar settlement citing racial discrimination after they were banned from guarding Derek Chauvin.

@ABCNews reports, back in May 2020 eight correctional officers of color were officially banned from guarding Derek Chauvin and essentially doing their jobs, following an order from then-Superintendent of Ramsey County Adult Detention Center, Steve Lydon. Fast forward over two years later, and those officers were just awarded $1.5 million in a racial discrimination settlement from a previous lawsuit they filed.

After being banned from guarding Derek Chauvin, the officers filed formal charges of discrimination with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights a month later. Unfortunately, those filings were closed, so the correctional officers filed a separate lawsuit. That led to a complaint in February 2021 where the eight officers cited multiple allegations that violated the Minnesota Human Rights Act, including race/color discrimination and a hostile working environment.
