A City Council committee decided Monday that Minneapolis will pay $175,000 to a former firefighter cadet who sued the city for discrimination. Dominique Sabas, of St. Paul, was a probationary firefighter cadet in 2013, but in the final week of training the Fire Department dismissed her, arguing that she had failed to disclose a previous medical condition. She sued the city, alleging sex discrimination, disability discrimination and medical information discrimination. She also sued a doctor, Thomas C. Jetzer, who examined her, accusing him of aiding and abetting the discrimination.
