NEW ORLEANS – An African-American pharmacy head employed by the U.S. Department of the Navy alleges he was subjected to a hostile work environment.

Leon Richard filed a complaint on March 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against Sean J. Stackley, acting secretary Department of U.S. Navy, alleging violation of the Civil Rights Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he began to work for the defendant in June 2008 and that in June 2015, he filed an informal complaint with the Office of Naval Relations regarding an unethical directive to recount medication. He alleges that after he filed the complaint, he was stripped of his administrative duties. The plaintiff holds Stackley responsible because the defendant's agents allegedly subjected him to a hostile work environment, discrimination, humiliation, intimidation and retaliation.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks award for all damages, cost of this action and all other relief for which he is entitled. He is represented by Clarence Roby Jr. of The Law Firm of Clarence Roby Jr. APLC in New Orleans.
