Attorneys have signed an agreement to dismiss a sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuit against celebrity cook Paula Deen and her brother.
Former Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Lisa Jackson used her private email to conduct official business, including with a lobbyist, in a possible violation of federal record laws.
A federal judge in Georgia has thrown out race discrimination claims by a former Savannah restaurant manager whose lawsuit against Paula Deen ended up causing the celebrity cook to lose a valuable chunk of her culinary empire.
The woman at the center of discrimination accusations that have sent celebrity chef Paula Deen's career into a tailspin said on Wednesday that her lawsuit was not about "the n-word" but about a work atmosphere of hurtful bias — and that racism hurts even white people.
Celebrity cook Paula Deen said while being questioned in a discrimination lawsuit that she has used racial slurs in the past but insisted she and her family do not tolerate prejudice.
Some of President Barack Obama's political appointees, including the secretary for Health and Human Services, are using secret government email accounts they say are necessary to prevent their inboxes from being overwhelmed with unwanted messages, according to a review by The Associated Press.
Richard Windsor never existed at the EPA, but the agency awarded the fictional staffer’s email account certificates proving he had mastered all of the agency’s technology training — including declaring him a “scholar of ethical behavior,” according to documents disclosed late last week.
The Environmental Protection Agency will need a decade or more to complete assessments of dozens of toxic chemicals it targeted under a more aggressive approach unveiled last year, according to the Government Accountability Office.
While no official announcement has been made, speculation is swirling around Gina McCarthy as the White House's pick to head the Environmental Protection Agency.
Karen Mills, head of the Small Business Administration since 2009, is leaving her position, according to a media report.
The intense debate over fracking continues to play out on movie screens and television sets nationwide — and this time the industry's defenders are fighting back.
Matt Damon wanted to do a hit piece on fracking, the process by which natural gas is extracted from shale deposits deep in the ground.
The Obama administration's chief environmental watchdog, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, is stepping down after a nearly four-year tenure marked by high-profile brawls over global warming pollution, the Keystone XL oil pipeline, new controls on coal-fired plants and several other hot-button issues that affect the nation's economy and people's health.
Lisa Jackson stepped down Thursday as the Environmental Protection Agency's administrator, ending a four-year tenure in which she battled with industry and its Republican allies over new pollution controls, global warming and the Keystone XL oil pipeline.
The Environmental Protection Agency's inspector general announced Monday his office will review whether officials relied on fake email accounts to conceal their identities and divert attention away from the Obama administration.
Attorneys for Ms. Deen have said in court filings that Ms. Jackson’s lawsuit was based on “scurrilous and false claims.” They said before Ms. Jackson filed suit, she threatened to embarrass Ms. Deen publicly unless she paid the ex-employee “huge sums of money.”
In her lawsuit, Ms. Jackson had claimed Mr. Hiers frequently made jokes containing racial slurs at work and prohibited black workers from using the restaurant’s front entrance and customer restrooms.
