Port of Seattle officer files race-based discrimination suit

SEATTLE (AP) — A Black officer with the Port of Seattle police is suing the Port for failing to provide records of an investigation into allegations of racial discrimination he made against superiors including the police chief. The Seattle Times reports Yandle Moss alleged to his employer that Police Chief Rod Covey and other superiors were subjecting him to retaliation for engaging in protected activity including collective bargaining grievances, whistleblowing, and reporting race discrimination, and that he was being treated adversely because of his race, according to the complaint filed in July in King County Superior Court. The Port of Seattle did not immediately respond to request for comment.
