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.
