Together, they came to take a stand Thursday, this handful of former strangers, these women who had been singled out by stalker David Arthur Carlsberg.

And early this month, the office held its first training seminar for immigrant employers on federal anti-discrimination laws.

The single mother was reassigned for her own protection and three of the four men were discharged for sexual harassment, according to city documents.

Melissa Kelley thought she knew what she was getting into when she joined the Los Angeles Fire Department five years ago. Her grandfather had been a firefighter. She held a degree in fire science.
