ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Jury selection began Tuesday morning in the racial discrimination lawsuit filed by an Albany Police officer against the city.           

Captain Brian Lavoie claims he was passed over for a promotion in 2009 because he is white, and was paid less than his African American co-workers.     

Lavoie is seeking at least $75,000 for lost wages, emotional distress, and mental pain and suffering.
