La Canada : JPL Job Bias Suit Dismissed

April 08, 1993

Greg Richard, an African-American engineer who sued the Jet Propulsion Laboratory for $200 million last year for alleged discrimination, has lost his last bid to be heard in U.S. District Court.

In a March 30 decision, Judge Lourdes G. Baird refused a motion by Richard to reconsider his allegations of racial discrimination against the NASA lab. Baird also dismissed the last of five remaining counts for alleged breach of contract.

Richard, a 33-year-old mechanical engineer, spent two years trying to prove that JPL discriminated against him . JPL maintained it laid off Richard because of budget constraints.
