CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming’s corrections department is among the defendants named in a racial discrimination lawsuit filed by a former prison guard.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1Hb3NO0) Freddie Eugene McCoy left his job and reapplied within the state’s 24-month reinstatement period, but says he wasn’t rehired as white employees had been.

The Wyoming Department of Administration and Information, DOC director Robert O. Lampert and DOC employee Brenda Reedy are also defendants in the lawsuit.

McCoy is representing himself and seeks $75,000 in damages that include loss of earnings.

DOC spokesman Mark Horan said he couldn’t comment on pending litigation.
