Here is one case from Wisconsin

Associated Press - June 17, 2010 4:05 PM ET

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A lawyer for the former commandant of the Wisconsin Veterans Home at Union Grove says his firing is part of a pattern of discrimination against "old white guys."

In a complaint filed Thursday, Randy Nitschke alleges Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Ken Black has an agenda to discriminate against white males in their 50s and 60s.

The complaint says Black, who is African American, told managers during a meeting the agency had too many "older white males waiting to retire."

Black said that Nitschke's performance did not meet expectations, a charge he denies.

Nitschke's complaint says five other white employees in their 50s and 60s have been forced out, demoted or fired since Black was named secretary in November. Meanwhile, several younger females have been appointed to key jobs.

Black could not immediately be reached.
