CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The West Virginia Human Rights Commission plans to hold a hearing early next year on a former Montgomery police officer's discrimination complaint.
James Wesley Ivy alleges that he was discriminated against because he is black.
The Charleston Gazette reports that Ivy filed the complaint in May 2012. A hearing is scheduled in January 2014.
Ivy's complaint says he was hired as a patrolman in 2008. He claims he didn't receive a salary increase when he was promoted to lieutenant, and wasn't given responsibilities that come with the rank.
In 2010, the city settled a lawsuit filed by Ivy over the salary issue.
Ivy was later fired. In February, a Kanawha County Circuit Court judge upheld the dismissal. Ivy's attorney appealed that ruling to the West Virginia Supreme Court.
