Former Butler County court employee files discrimination suit

Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014, 7:03 p.m.
 

A former Butler County Common Pleas Court employee filed a federal lawsuit Thursday claiming the court discriminated against him because he is man.

Francis Plaisted, 65, of Butler, worked as the supervisor of tipstaves in 2010 and said his immediate supervisors were women. He claimed that he and the other male tipstaves were either assigned peripheral roles in or excluded from the jury selection process while female employees were assigned prominent roles.

After returning from heart surgery in 2013, Plaisted was not given back his duties as scheduler and was later laid off “due to lack of work,” according to the lawsuit. A woman then was given his previous job duties, the lawsuit states.
