Employees file suit over 'noose'
CARROLLTON, Ga. - It is an image that six African-American workers in Carrollton said is more painful to them than any angry words would be.
The employees are talking about a rope tied in the form of a noose, which they said was displayed next to a break room for everyone to see.
Those employees from the Blue Water Ropes company are now taking their employer to court.
Their attorney alleges the display created a hostile work environment.
A company spokesperson said he could not make any comment due to the legal action.
