White v. City of Pasadena, 08-57012

In an action stemming a former police officer's termination from her employment with a city, the district court's dismissal is affirmed on the grounds of issue preclusion, where: 1) the allegations supporting claims of discrimination and harassment were all alleged and decided against the plaintiff in a prior state-court suit; and 2) it was determined in a prior city administrative proceeding, upheld on review by the state trial and appellate courts, that the city had an adequate justification for the plaintiff's termination that was not a pretext for a retaliatory intent.
