White Library Workers Win Racial Discrimination Case

Wednesday, 11 June 2003 12:00 AM

A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court's ruling that three members of the library board and the system director knew it was illegal to consider race in personnel decisions but nevertheless transferred the women to lesser jobs.

The appellate court's decision, written by Judge Susan Black, said library officials intentionally discriminated "on the basis of race and used trickery and deceit to cover it up under the guise of a 'reorganization.'"

Black noted that a library board member complained publicly about a "white-dominated administration" and "too many white faces."

Fulton County Attorney O. V. Brantley said she would recommend that the county commissioners request a hearing before the full appellate court, which could reverse the panel's decision.
