Federal Judge Rules for Corporation Commission in Lawsuit

An Oklahoma City woman active in civil rights has lost most of her federal lawsuit against the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.

U.S. District Judge Vicki Miles-LaGrange has dismissed many of the claims made in a lawsuit filed last year by former commission employee Rosalyn Jacquett. She ruled on a motion by attorneys for the commission.

She filed suit in September 2017 claiming breach of employment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, violation of the Americans with Disability Act and the Oklahoma Anti-Handicap Act, violation of Family Medical Leave Act and violation of race laws.

In a ruling this month, Judge Miles-LaGrange dismissed the claims that also included allegations of hostile work environment. But she allowed Jacquett to amend her complaint.
