ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A federal lawsuit against the city of Albany by a former employee is essentially over.

Former Civic Center Director Mattie Goddard filed suit against the city back in 2006 after she was fired. She claimed she was discriminated because of her race... gender... and age. A district court Judge dismissed the case last March.

Goddard's lawyer appealed. This week, the Court of Appeals upheld that decision.

There is still a lawsuit pending on the state level.
