Court to hear EHT school custodian\'s claims that she was discriminated against based on her weight.
 

Issue Detail:

 
On June 6, 2014, 1:30 p.m., Atlantic County Superior Court Judge Allen J. Littlefield will hear the Egg Harbor Township school board\'s motion to dismiss a school custodian\'s Law Against Discrimination lawsuit against the school board and the custodian\'s supervisor. The custodian claimed that she was discriminated against and ultimately discharged from employment because of her weight. Some of the court filings are on-line here. In her suit, Barbara Sheridan, who claimed to have performed her duties in a satisfactory manner since 2004, claimed that she was repeatedly pestered and humiliated by supervisor Terri Chase about her weight. As an example of the humiliation she allegedly suffered, she claimed that Chase, seeing her on a six-foot aluminmum ladder, said \"Get off the ladder, you are going to break it.\" If the lawsuit survives the school board\'s motion to dismiss, a trial will be held on July 7, 2014.
