A federal lawsuit filed last week by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission accuses Georgia Military College of racial discrimination.

The suit alleges officials at the junior college’s Milledgeville campus subjected an African American groundskeeper to racially hostile work conditions for four years.

The EEOC filed the suit in U.S. District court after the college refused a pre-litigation settlement.

Georgia Military College officials say the EEOC hasn’t notified them of the lawsuit.
