  • Greensboro, NC -- The greensboro police officer at the center of racial discrimination allegations has decided to re-file his lawsuit against the city. Initially, Lieutenant James Hinson was seeking damages in excess of $30,000 dollars.

    After finding a tracking device on his car, Hinson accused former Police Chief David Wray of discrimination. Hinson claimed police followed him without reason and unfairly targeted black officers.
    Last September, Lieutenant Hinson came by our studios to announce he was dismissing his inital suit, as a way to help the city. "I will treat today's actions as a peace offering to the city of Greensboro, providing an opportunity to resolve the issues in this case without the cost, inconvenience and further polarization that comes with continued litigation."

    Last year, Hinson did say he would consider re-filing the suit within the next year if the issues can not be resolved out of court.

    In the new suit, Hinson also blames discrimination for his failure to be promoted since 2001. Former Police Chief David Wray has repeatedly denied any discrimination took place.
