Former Fulton County Human Services Deputy Director Douglas Carl won a $300,000 judgment in a race and gender discrimination lawsuit that he filed against the county.
Carl is a white man who alleged he was subjected to racial and gender discrimination when a black woman was selected over him for a job. During the trial, former County Manager Tom Andrews admitted calling employees “black marbles” and “white marbles” in weighing personnel decisions, and the jury found that Andrews discriminated against Carl.
Georgia attorneys A. Lee Parks, Jr. and Andrew Y. Coffman from the law firm Parks, Chesin & Walbert, P.C. represented Carl in his race and gender discrimination lawsuit against the Fulton County.
