Fired city attorney claims racial bias in wrongful termination lawsuit

Lynn Whitfield says she was fired as Hallandale Beach city attorney more than two years ago because she’s black.

Now she wants her job back.

Whitfield has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against Hallandale Beach and the three commissioners who voted to fire her on Nov. 29, 2016: Commissioners Michele Lazarow and Anabelle Lima-Taub along with Keith London, who is no longer on the five-member board.

Whitfield, 64, claims her termination was motivated by racial discrimination.
