FLINT, Mich., Feb. 23 (UPI) -- A Michigan hospital has settled a racial discrimination lawsuit by a nurse who said it complied with a man's demand that no black nurse care for his newborn.
Tonya Battle, an African-American nurse at Hurley Medical Center in Flint, said she was caring for the infant at the time of the father's request -- which the nurse manager allegedly complied with.
After the man asked that no African-American staff members care for his child, he allegedly showed off a swastika tattoo.
Battle and hospital officials announced the settlement Friday at a news conference, The Detroit News reported.
Terms of the settlement were not reported.
