Settlement in works in ICE discrimination case
Tuesday - 9/4/2012, 5:20pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) - A federal lawsuit that resulted in the resignation of a senior aide to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano might be settled out of court.
Morris Fischer, a Maryland lawyer representing James T. Hayes Jr., head of the New York field office for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, says a federal magistrate judge in Washington will mediate the case.
In the lawsuit, Hayes described what he called a "frat house" atmosphere designed to humiliate male employees under former Immigration and Customs Chief of Staff Suzanne Barr. At least two other male employees have since made similar allegations against Barr.
Barr, who resigned Saturday, has denied wrongdoing.
Fischer said Hayes and the Justice Department agreed to mediate the case.
Hayes is seeking more than $4 million for sexual discrimination and retaliation.
