Dunlin wants jury to hear case
Published: February 17,2010
GREENWOOD — George Dulin is asking a federal appeals court to let a jury determine the fate of his discrimination lawsuit against Greenwood Leflore Hospital.
The white former hospital attorney had alleged he was fired because of his race by the majority-black hospital board, but a judge dismissed Dulin’s suit during a trial in Aberdeen last month.
The Greenwood Commonwealth reports Jim Waide, Dulin’s attorney, filed notice of appeal with the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
The lawsuit included both the hospital and Leflore County Supervisor Robert Moore, but Moore is not included in the appeal.
Dulin had alleged Moore influenced hospital board members to push Dulin out.
