Salina discrimination claim dismissed

Salina discrimination claim dismissed

By Associated Press. CREATED Aug 16, 2014

SALINA, Kan. (AP) An attorney for the Salina Human Relations Commission says he could not find enough evidence to support a discrimination claim filed by a former interim director of the Saline County Health Department.

Suzette Brotton had filed the claim in April against the commission after it chose Bronson Farmer, rather than her, to direct to health department. She claimed she was not chosen because she is a woman.

The Salina Journal reports attorney Allen Glendenning said Friday he had found insufficient evidence to establish that discrimination occurred.

Farmer was chosen despite having previously been fired from the health department for allegedly falsifying mileage reports. He has denied that charge.

Brotton has filed a similar complaint with the Kansas Human Rights Commission, and that case is pending.
