The U.S. Postal Service must face trial on whether White supervisors at its Mandeville, La., location harassed a Black letter carrier because of her race, a New Orleans federal judge ruled.
Paula Watson said the hostile work environment arose after Leslie Golden was named postmaster of the Mandeville office and it included her being accused by Adam Taylor, her direct supervisor, of stealing documents that belonged to Golden. Golden and Taylor are White, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana said.
