Corrections agency not commenting on flag suit

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The Connecticut Department of Corrections is not commenting on a lawsuit brought by a black employee alleging she was suspended without pay for complaining about a Confederate flag.

Carla Moore objected to a corrections officer displaying a Confederate flag in his vehicle in the parking lot of the Corrigan-Radgowski prison in Uncasville.

She alleges in a lawsuit filed Monday in U.S. District Court that she was suspended without pay for one day after telling superiors she felt the flag was becoming a "permanent fixture."

The Department of Corrections says it does not comment on active litigation.
