Dee Jackson 2020 Lawsuit Against Channel 41

In 2010, Dee settled his lawsuit case against Channel 41 for race discrimination and retaliation. His attorney announced the matter had been “resolved,” but declined further comments.“I’m happy it’s been resolved,” Jackson stated. “Kari Wethington confirmed in an email that the matter had been resolved. Therefore, his case was dismissed “with prejudice,” meaning he can’t refile it since it was settled out of court. Dee kept the terms of the case’s resolution confidential.

Jackson’s allegations were that he was twice passed over for the position of sports director after he was led to believe he would get the job.  He later amended his lawsuit to include a charge of unlawful revenge after KSHB planned not to renew his contract.

Prior to joining KSHB in 2013, he served as a TV sports director in Montgomery, Alabama, for 12 years. He decided to work in Kansas City, a place where he was raised after he was convinced to become sports director at KSHB. However he was passed over for the promised position twice – in part, he alleged that he belongs to the black community.”When I started in 2013, I was the only black male working at the station in an on-air capacity,” he stated.

Previously, the jury delivered a mixed verdict in yet another race discrimination and retaliation suit filed by reporter Lisa Benson Cooper against Channel. The jury found for the station and Scripps on Cooper’s race discrimination claim but found Cooper on her retaliation claims. Therefore, it awarded her $26,000 in actual damages and $175,000 in punitive damages. The judge awarded her an additional $110,000 in lost wages and her lawyers nearly $692,000 in attorneys’ fees. Dee later started teaching a television broadcasting class at Paseo High School while working at KSHB and resumed his job.
