Former Apple employee Shaune Patterson is suing the company for discrimination. “This lawsuit, filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California in San Francisco, may be one of the largest discrimination lawsuits filed against Apple Computer by a Lesbian,” notes the announcement. “The amended complaint, filed on May 16, 2005, alleges that Shaune Patterson was suspended for one month and then subsequently wrongfully terminated from her position, after she complained that her white counterparts, who were junior to her, were making higher salaries than she was. Patterson alleges that the suspension came one day after she complained of racial discrimination.” In addition, Patterson alleges that one of Apple’s managers wrote a memo describing her as a “rather obese-sized black lesbian.”
