Mediation may keep Albany and Mattie Goddard from court

December 22, 2005

Albany - The city of Albany will try to mediate with the Civic Center Director over a discrimination complaint. 66 year-old Mattie Goddard filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission claiming the city manager was discriminating against her because of her age, race, and sex.

The EEOC will send a mediator to listen to both sides, offer solutions and then issue its finding. The city attorney says the mediation can help avoid litigation. But if the city and Goddard cannot reach common ground, the case could go to court.
