"A former University of Minnesota employee has filed a federal lawsuit claiming that she lost her job in the Office for Equity and Diversity for raising concerns about racial profiling on campus."

From the Star Tribune: 

"After she aired her grievances at a public forum in January 2014, Alysia Lajune received a warning letter and was ultimately fired for “exercising her right to free speech,” according to the lawsuit, which was filed recently in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis."

"In the suit, Lajune also alleges that she was required to run personal errands during business hours for her former boss, Katrice Albert, the vice president for equity and diversity. She said she was asked to find doctors and dentists for Albert and her boyfriend, and that Albert had an extra house key made so Lajune could supervise maintenance work at her home."

"The suit names Albert and President Eric Kaler as well as the U, accusing them of defamation and violating her First Amendment rights."
