Former UCLA surgeon Dr. Christian Head won a $4.5 million racial discrimination lawsuit from UCLA medical school which superimposed his face onto a gorilla which was being sodomized by a department chairman in a slide show presentation.
Dr. Head filed the lawsuit against the UC Board of Regents in April after claiming he was publicly humiliated by the portrayal. In the lawsuit, Head accused the university of failing to prevent discrimination, harassment and retaliation against him. The complaint alleges that during a resident graduation event in 2006, a slide show was created by the residents and reviewed by staff, including the photo of his face superimposed onto a gorilla.
Two UCLA professors were also named in the lawsuit. Dr. Gerald Berke and Dr. Marilene Wang were accused of making ‘inappropriate racial comments and insinuations about blacks’ and Christian Head for years.
