PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Another man who used to work for Daimler Trucks North America in Portland has filed a discrimination lawsuit against the company.

The Oregonian newspaper reports (https://is.gd/8g5Y24 ) 40-year-old Ricky Pang filed a $250,000 lawsuit on Tuesday saying he was mistreated because of his race and age.

His lawsuit is the latest in a series of actions accusing the German company with U.S. headquarters in Oregon of racially hostile work conditions.

In January, the company agreed to pay $2.4 million to settle complaints filed by six former workers who said they were targets of racist or homophobic slurs.

In February, four African-American current or former employees filed a $9.5 million discrimination lawsuit saying they were targeted with nooses and harassed in other ways.

In April, an Egyptian-born engineer filed a $2 million lawsuit, claiming his supervisor often called him “bin Laden.”
