The L.A. Sheriff”s Dept. deputy who arrested Mel Gibson during the famous drunken Malibu tirade has struck a settlement deal in his discrimination lawsuit with L.A. County.
James Mee had sued the County … claiming he felt he was unfairly punished and overlooked for promotions because the County allegedly targeted him as the person who leaked Mel Gibson”s DUI arrest documents to in 2006.
But that claim had previously been thrown out by the judge, so Mee”s only remaining claim was that he was discriminated against because he is Jewish.
Now, Mee and the County have reached a settlement in the discrimination case … forever ending the saga between Mee and the County. The terms of the settlement have not been disclosed.
