A lawsuit has been filed against a top Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy in federal court which alleges that he discriminated against a coworker.

According to The New Orleans Advocate, Ronald Coleman Sr. was working as an engineer for the Sheriff’s Office when Chief Deputy Jerry Ursin called him a “stupid, ungrateful n****r” and threatened him.

The lawsuit said that Coleman had been called to repair an air conditioning unit at an administrative Sheriff’s Office building known as CWA, which was located next to Conchetta detention facility.

Coleman said that Ursin became irate because an 18-foot ladder required for checking on the facility’s equipment had allegedly blocked his parking area.

“Do you know that you are blocking my parking?” Ursin asked.

Ursin, who is white, serves as second-in-command for Sheriff Marlin Gusman. Coleman, who is black, has been employed by the Sheriff’s Office since February 2014.

“The president is giving a lot of thought to where he goes when he is acquitted and vindicated,” a senior administration official told the website. “This isn’t a one-and-done moment. This will be a sustained exit from a long dreary impeachment process and a great reset to 2020 — not just the 2020 reelection but the 2020 domestic and international arena.”
