Manager Sues NJ Transit Again After $3.65M Settlement

A New Jersey Transit manager who was part of a $3.65 million settlement of a discrimination claim last year has sued again, alleging she was retaliated against for that lawsuit.

The Asbury Park Press reports that Pia Wilson is suing after she was transferred to a new job and three of the managers who reported to her were fired, transferred or retired and not replaced. The suit says they weren't replaced in retaliation.

A spokeswoman for NJ Transit declined to comment. The agency does not typically comment on pending litigation.

Wilson's direct supervisor also sued last year after he said he was retaliated against after detailing instances of alleged discrimination in a deposition for Wilson's 2014 suit.

The 2014 suit said that the agency was negligent in preventing or responding to discrimination.
