A lawsuit has been filed in Wayne County Circuit Court against Equality Michigan, involving a dispute with a former employee. In Sept. 2009, during Alicia Skillman’s tenure as executive director of the then named Triangle Foundation, Dr. Selma Massey was hired as the director of victim services. She left the organization several months later.
According to Equality Michigan Board Treasurer Dave Wait, Massey threatened to sue when she was terminated and he told BTL a settlement was reached between her and the organization at that time. He said because it is a personnel issue, he could not disclose more details. Wait did say he was “surprised this is coming up now, this was settled years ago,” and on Sunday he confirmed that court documents had been served. He declined further comment about the case and the effects it could have on the organization.
