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.
