The Lansing police officer fired for improperly using a background check system files a lawsuit against the department.
Lori Williams claims discrimination and gender bias.
She says she used the computer system to look up her husband's license number to fill out an insurance form. She was convicted on that one charge last month.
The police chief fired her Tuesday.
Williams, an eight year veteran of the force, claims another officer used the computer system and was disciplined internally, not fired.
Williams' lawsuit is pending in federal court.
