Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office Sued for DiscriminationLast Edited:
In a new lawsuit, three women are accusing the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office of Discrimination.
The three women used to work in managerial positions with the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office and have filed a discrimination lawsuit.
They claim Prosecutor Damon Tyner discriminated against them on the basis of gender, engaged in mortgage fraud, and protected a friend's brother who smuggled marijuana into the county jail.
The lawsuit alleges that Tyner and others in the office created a "toxic" workplace for women, including demoting, firing or forcing out two of the three female plaintiffs.
Tyner, through a spokeswoman, declined comment.
