A Denver judge has approved a Trinidad firefighter's discrimination lawsuit.
The firefighter, David Guara, alleges that he was frequently verbally abused during his eight years working for the city. Other firefighters referred to him with ethnic slurs and vandalized his locker on two separate occasions.
Guara believes that this pattern of behavior is a violation of federal anti-discrimination laws. The judge's ruling to allow the case to proceed read that Guara provided sufficient evidence
showing he was discriminated against on a more-than-weekly basis, being called "just a Mexican," a "Spaniard," and other discriminatory terms.
