A sexual harassment and race discrimination suit has been filed against the City of Annapolis, Maryland by its director of small and minority business enterprise development, Ruby Blakeney.

Blakeney claims in her lawsuit that the city director of economic affairs, Mike Miron, treated white employees better than her, told her that she wold have been excluded from a business lunch in days of segregation, and made sexually offensive comments to her and other women. Blakeney also claims that the mayor's boyfriend, Dale Maddox, groped her at a public event and later called her "Aunt Jemima."  After the city failed to take any corrective action and she filed a charge of discrimination with the EEOC, she suffered retaliation in the form of micro-managing of her schedule, exclusion from managment-level meetings and denied computer equipment essential for her job. 

Robert L. Abell, a lawyer in Lexington, Kentucky, represents individual employees subjected to sexual harassment and discrimination in their jobs.
