SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — A black police officer at the Sandy Springs Police Department has filed a federal civil rights suit against the agency, claiming that he was denied promotions and key assignments and unfairly disciplined because of racial discrimination.
Officer Jamaal Mayberry, who started working for the department when the city launched it in July 2006, filed the suit Dec. 23 in the U.S. District Court of North Georgia.
