Terry Goddard Settles Sexual Discrimination Suit against Marana Health Center

(Phoenix, Ariz. – Feb. 5, 2009) Attorney General Terry Goddard today announced a settlement with Marana Health Center resolving allegations that the Marana-based medical provider violated the Arizona Civil Rights Act when it did not select Dr. Joy Mockbee for the company’s medical director position because of her gender.    

A lawsuit filed by the state in May 2007 alleged that Dr. Mockbee had been an associate medical director for Marana Health Center in 2005 and had applied for the Center’s vacant medical director position when it was posted.
