Jury sides with firefighters in lawsuit over lieutenants exam

SAN FRANCISCO

Fifteen current and retired firefighters claimed they were denied promotions because of their age. They accused the department of changing test scores and destroying documents.

A jury agreed with them Monday. The plaintiffs will split a 3-point-7 million dollar settlement.

The city argued in court the scores were not altered, but "corrected."
