ATLANTA — A man who tried to become an Atlanta police officer in 2006 is suing the department, claiming it secretly had him tested for HIV and would not hire him after learning that he was HIV-positive.

The man, who filed the lawsuit in federal court under the pseudonym Richard Roe, is accusing Atlanta Police Department of discrimination and violation of privacy and claims that the department has a policy of not hiring people who have HIV, according to court documents.
