TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) - Two former Twin Falls County sheriff’s deputies have filed a lawsuit against the county, contending Sheriff Tom Carter discriminated against them based on their sex.

The Times-News of Twin Falls reported Tuesday the lawsuit was filed March 13 in federal court by Becky White and Susan Stringer.

They contend they were passed over for promotions, given fewer training opportunities than males and held to a higher standard than male deputies.

The lawsuit says both women believe they made considerably less money than male counterparts who had the same amount of experience. It also says the women were denied overtime pay when male employees were not.

The lawsuit says both women regularly had to suffer vulgar, offensive, sexual comments.
