Metropolitan Council Wins Jury Trial


An employee of the Metropolitan Council filed a lawsuit in December 2012 against the Metropolitan Council alleging violations of Title VII of the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Minnesota Human Rights Act. The employee plaintiff claimed the Council did not promote her in violation of a policy to promote internally. On December 17, 2014, after a three-day trial, a federal United States District Court jury determined agents of the Metropolitan Council did not discriminate in promoting another employee over the plaintiff. The Metropolitan Council and its agents were represented by Susan M. Tindal and Nathan C. Midolo.
