Parks' board settles harassment lawsuit, Chicago Tribune, May 12, 2005

Chicago Park District officials agreed to settle a four-plaintiff sexual harassment suit against them by paying $240,000.  Although the settlement was approved, a spokeswoman for the park district says they are not admitting to any wrongdoing.  They have also said that the accused no longer works for the district.  Uche Asonye filed the suit for his four-plaintiffs in November 2002 after inappropriate touching and lewd comments had occurred from the late 1990s into 2001.  In addition to this, two of the four women were retaliated against after rejecting his advances.
