State v. Maricopa Unified School District No. 20 (race)

February, 2009

This is an action brought under the Arizona Civil Rights Act to correct an unlawful employment practice, to provide appropriate relief to an aggrieved person, and to vindicate the public interest. Specifically, the State brings this matter to redress the injury sustained because Maricopa Unified School District No. 20 ("MUSD") engaged in an unlawful employment practice against Nikita Barrow when it failed to promote her to a Human Resources Specialist position because of her race in violation of the Arizona Civil Rights Act, A.R.S. § 41-1463(B).
