A lawsuit filed against the Fire Department of New York accuses it of discriminating against black employees and job seekers in its ambulance and civilian support staff operations and comes almost four years after the department agreed to pay $98 million to settle a discrimination lawsuit from black firefighters. The new lawsuit, filed in federal court in Manhattan, has seven plaintiffs, all current employees. One of those employees works in the ambulance service, and the others are in non-uniform positions such as human resources and computers.
