SAG faces 3rd minority suit

Langford action seeks at least $2 mil in damages

The Screen Actors Guild’s former administrator of signatory records contracts has sued SAG for alleged wrongful termination, the third such suit filed by a minority group member in the past month.

The action, filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court by Kelley Langford, seeks at least $2 million in damages. Langford said in the suit that she is of African-American and Polynesian descent and had been hired by SAG in 1993 as a secretary.

SAG declined comment on the suit, which alleges Langford was fired last year on false accusations of conducting personal business while at work, using the guild’s Internet access and email excessively and engaging in “spiritual or religious” activities during work hours.

SAG was sued last month in separate actions by the two former top administrators in its affirmative action department. Patricia Heisser Metoyer, who is African-American, alleged she was placed on leave over her complaints about falsified statistics on the racial makeup of SAG staff; Peter Nguyen said he was harassed and passed over for jobs by senior staff because he is Asian-American, then fired on trumped-up charges in retaliation for pursuing inhouse discrimination allegations and opposing affirmative action budget cuts.
