LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - A lawsuit that accused Lynchburg City Schools of discriminating against a former employee has been dismissed.
Ralph L. Hayes' lawsuit alleged that the city School Board eliminated Hayes' position in 2012 and refused to offer him alternate employment because he is black.
U.S. District Judge Norman Moon ruled on Friday that there was no credible evidence in the case's record of discrimination against Hayes because of his race.
The school board's attorney, John C. Johnson, tells The News & Advance that Hayes' position was eliminated because of budget constraints.
