HR Strange But True!
February 02, 2006

Dennis Rader, who pleaded guilty in 2005 to killing 10 people in Wichita, Kansas, is facing another charge: Workplace discrimination.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Mary Capps has filed a gender-discrimination lawsuit against Rader and a supervisor at the Park City ordinance-compliance office for which Rader worked before his arrest as the BTK killer.

In the lawsuit, Capps alleges that while Rader was her boss at the ordinance-compliance office, he subjected her to an incident that included "abusive, intimidating language and physical gestures" because of her sex. In addition, she claims a supervisor brushed off her complaint. Capps is seeking $75,000.

An attorney representing Rader and the supervisor tells the newspaper that the lawsuit lacks merit.

"Capps is just trying to make money from Rader's notoriety," says attorney Susan Selvidge.

Rader is serving 10 consecutive life sentences after pleading guilty to committing 10 murders from 1974 to 1991, the newspaper notes.
