Hospital wins verdict in discrimination case

GREENWOOD — A federal appeals court has upheld the verdict in a discrimination lawsuit won by Greenwood Leflore Hospital.

Former hospital board attorney George Dulin sued the hospital after he alleged he was fired in 2006 by the majority-black hospital board because he is white.

A federal judge dismissed the lawsuit last year.

Dulin’s attorney contended that the jury should have been allowed to decide whether Dulin faced discrimination.

In a 2-1 decision this past week, a panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Dulin failed to prove the board intentionally discriminated against him because he is white.

  1. I do not like discrimination lawsuits… you do the job or you don’t. I hope the courts will see things the same way if the roles a reversed.
