She left the job abruptly just days before a federal judge reconfirmed a $755,000 jury award against McDermed and her department in a whistleblower case. The jury's decision indicated they believed she retaliated unlawfully against an employee who complained about her leadership, then lied about it repeatedly on the stand.

She raised questions about her own judgment, testifying she lacked familiarity with a longstanding federal law regarding police officer honesty and saying it did not occur to her that fraud was a form of dishonesty.
