According to board documents, Phillips sued the city earlier this year alleging that city officials violated the city’s whistleblower law as well as federal fair employment laws.
"Phillips complained that her salary was not in line with male counterparts following a promotion, according to the documents. ... Phillips also claimed she was fired due to a report she made to the city’s inspector general. ...
"Stephen Lebau, an attorney representing Phillips, said he and his client were pleased to see the matter resolved."
