Airport Employee files Discrimination Lawsuit against the city of Charlotte

The Assistant Aviation Director of Operations has filed a discrimination lawsuit against the city of Charlotte. He's worked for the airport for 19 years.

Herbert Judon, who is African American, says he's been overlooked for promotions because of his race.

The City of Charlotte released the following statement:

“The City respects Mr. Judon’s right to seek redress through the courts.  The lawsuit will have no effect on the city’s treatment of Mr. Judon as an employee.  Beyond that, it would be inappropriate to comment on the substance of Mr. Judon’s allegations at this time," said City Attorney Bob Hagemann.
