Library bias suit decision upheld

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Reports A federal appeals court has confirmed that officials with the library system for Atlanta and Fulton County made a $17 million mistake by discriminating against seven white librarians.
An opinion filed Friday in the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court's ruling against the library. The opinion, based on a unanimous decision by a three-judge panel, said officials knew it was illegal to consider race in personnel decisions, yet they transferred the women to lesser jobs anyway because of the color of their skin.
