Firefighter fed dog food loses $2.7m award

Interesting update on the case of the black firefighter in LA who won, then lost, a $2.7 million judgment after nine white colleagues put dog food in his spaghetti  as a prank:

  • The black firefighter called himself "Big Dog"
  • Photos prove he had engaged in other pranks with firefighters before

The 15 member city council, which originally  issued the award, refused to override the mayor's veto of it 9-6.  An override would have required 10 votes.

Hat tip to reader Shifty!
