Kentucky man and his transgender wife file federal lawsuit against Amazon
The lawsuit was filed on Wednesday.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Kentucky man and his transgender wife file a federal lawsuit against Amazon.
The lawsuit, filed Wednesday, alleges that Dane Lane and Allegra Schawe-Lane were targeted with threats, slurs, and sexual harassment by co-workers during the year they worked at the Amazon warehouse in northern Kentucky.
The couple claims complaints to superiors led to retaliation in some cases, but not any effective steps to stop the abuse.
A lawyer working with the couple says the case is important in part because Amazon has a strong record of supporting gay and transgender rights.
