An employee of the Springfield Water and Wastewater Department has filed a federal lawsuit against the city for racial discrimination, the Tennessean reports. Jordan Dickerson said co-workers racially harassed him on multiple occasions, including once when co-workers put a rope around his neck. The city disputes the rope incident occurred, but admitted that another incident involving a racist text message was true. Dickerson is asking for $500,000 and punitive damages.
