Hearing Advanced on City’s Motion for Medical Exam of Firefighter


A judge Thursday advanced the hearing date on a defense motion to conduct an independent medical examination of a white Los Angeles city firefighter who alleges he suffered a backlash and emotional distress in 2017 after complaining that a Black colleague threatened to bomb him.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Monica Bachner scheduled the city’s motion for hearing on Aug. 24, six months earlier than the original date of Feb. 16 and long after the scheduled Sept. 19 start of trial of firefighter James Sharlein’s case.

Sharlien’s suit alleges discrimination, harassment and retaliation, and that some of the alleged misconduct was racially motivated. Also named as a defendant is female firefighter Ta’Ana Mitchell.
