BETHLEHEM, Pa. - A trial is underway over a Lehigh University civil rights lawsuit.
Angela Scott Ferencin claims she resigned as an employee in 2017 due to a hostile work environment.
Ferencin, who is African-American, was the former Director of Academic Diversity and Outreach.
She alleges that during her time there her supervisor yelled at her, saying she should never disagree with him in public.
She also claims she was wrongly accused of retaliating against a younger, white employee.
Lehigh University says it plans to prove that the case has no merit.
