(AP) Topeka, Kan A former Shawnee County Juvenile Detention Center employee who was seeking $4 million in a federal lawsuit against county employees and the state attorney general is appealing the lawsuit's dismissal.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1cGzd00 ) Ning Lu has appealed the dismissal last month of the federal lawsuit she filed against 10 Shawnee County employees and Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt.
County counselor Rich Eckert said in a release Tuesday that Lu filed the appeal with the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Lu filed the lawsuit in March when she was 47, contending she was a victim of age and racial discrimination at the juvenile detention center, where she worked from 2010 to 2012.
Lu sought $4 million in damages in lost wages, emotional pain and harm to her reputation.
