Transgender cop fired
HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT- A transgender cop was fired after a city investigation showed she was not discriminated against, despite her claims.
Franchesco Quaranta claims city leaders conspired to fire her because of her sexuality.
The city of Middletown says Quaranta failed her a fitness for duty evaluation, refused to take part in a second evaluation and rejected the city's attempts to return her to work.
She got her termination letter last week.
But Quaranta claims her police supervisors made remarks about her, ordered her to change her hairstyle and remove her earrings.
She has a discrimination complaint pending with the state of Connecticut.
