A Northampton County Prison Corrections Officer has filed a gender bias lawsuit against her boss and the county.

Laura Kane says she was passed up for a Lieutenant position twice and subjected to derisive and derogatory comments from male colleagues.

And she says her complaints about the issue weren't taken seriously by her superiors.

Her lawsuit names Northampton County and Director of Corrections Arnold Matos.

Matos says he has no comment at this time.
