Black Public Defenders Sue Atlanta
Law Center | 2008/06/05 07:51
In pursuit of greater diversity, the City of Atlanta laid off five black female public defenders who were better qualified and had more experience than the white men it retained, the women claim in Federal Court.

The women claim, the decision makers regarding the reduction in force laid off plaintiffs as part of an effort to achieve what they perceived as greater diversity in a department that had previously had primarily African American and female employees.

The woman want reinstatement, back pay, damages and costs, alleging racial and sexual discrimination.
