Posted 7:10 PM 3/14/2012 : Springs man wins day in court in discrimination case
A Colorado Springs man has won a major legal victory in his discrimination complaint filed against the Army after a supervisor at Fort Carson reportedly threatened him with a noose.
Anthony Jackson received notice over the weekend from the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in Washington D.C. that reversed previous decisions dismissings his complaint without a hearing.
The order requires that a hearing be held. Jackson says he realizes the fight isn't finished, but says he should get his day in court.
"These people are going to have to justify their action and why they did what they did. It's just not, they just said that they didn't do anything wrong and so it's okay."
The order requires the Army to submit a request for a hearing within 15 days.
