A $60,000 payment to settle a harassment and discrimination lawsuit filed by a city employee has been approved by the Des Moines City (Iowa) Council.
Trujillo started suffering from late-stage Lyme disease in March 2008, which led to a large brain lesion and severe cardiac and neurological problems, the lawsuit said. She also was diagnosed with pernicious anemia, a disease that can lead to fatigue, nausea and weakness.
In December, Zeigler noted that Trujillo had recovered from the brain lesion and was being treated for her anemia. The harassment had ceased, she indicated at the time.
