Black Workers Accuse Marshals Service Of Discrimination

The suit in U.S. District Court seeks broad changes in job practices at a law enforcement agency that has grappled with race bias accusations dating back to the 1990s. It cast the agency as a “good old boys network” that exploited loopholes to groom whites for leadership positions while reprimanding blacks for “trivial mistakes.”
Seeking to sue on behalf of 200 current or former black employees, the challenge alleges violations of federal civil rights laws. The suit is asking for damages of at least $300 million for lost back pay and harm suffered in a “hostile work environment.”
