Albany - Former Albany Civic Center Director Mattie Goddard won't withdraw her lawsuit against the City, even though the E.E.O.C closed her discrimination case.

Goddard was fired in February after 23 years at the civic center. Prior to her dismissal, Goddard filed an E.E.O.C. complaint claiming City Manager Alfred Lott was discriminating against her because of her race, age and gender.

After Goddard was fired, the E.E.O.C closed its investigation and issued Goddard what's called "a right to sue" and said the case must be filed in federal or state court. Goddard has already filed a lawsuit in Superior court. The suit claims the city manager knowingly broke city policies when he fired Goddard and intentionally inflicted emotional distress.
