US alleges sex bias by Queen Anne's sheriff
Monday - 2/11/2013, 10:00pm EST
CENTREVILLE, Md. (AP) -- The U.S. Justice Department is intervening in a lawsuit brought against the Queen Anne's County Sheriff's Office alleging sex discrimination.
The suit was filed in 2010 by Kristy Murphy-Taylor, a former detective in the Sheriff's Office. It alleges that the department subjected Murphy-Taylor to a sexually hostile work environment and retaliated against her. The suit says Murphy-Taylor was eventually fired.
The Justice Department said on Monday that its complaint in intervention represents a matter of general public importance.
A spokesman for the Sheriff's Office did not immediately respond to a voicemail seeking comment.
