According to The Topeka Capital Journal, an attorney for the Salina Human Relations Commission says he couldn’t find enough evidence to support a 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 the health department.
She claimed she wasn’t chosen because she is a woman.
The Salina Journal reports attorney Allen Glendenning said Friday that he had found sufficient evidence to establish that discrimination had 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.
