Feds sue NYC parks officials
The Associated Press
NEW YORK -- The federal government sued New York City's parks department Wednesday, saying it had discriminated against minority employees in promotions.
The lawsuit follows an investigation begun in 1999 when black and Hispanic parks employees complained they were discriminated against.
The Justice Department, in its lawsuit, said Parks and Recreation's senior managers seek out and promote whites to management positions without announcing job openings or conducting formal interviews.
