Former chief of Fall River, MA, hospital files suit
A former Caritas Christi Health Care System executive sued the Massachusetts-based hospital chain for allegedly retaliating against him after he privately voiced support for a colleague's discrimination claim, telling her she had been "sold out by white males." Michael Metzler, former president of St. Anne's Hospital in Fall River, MA, alleged in a federal lawsuit Caritas Christi reneged on a promise to pay him $250,000 for three months of consulting work after he retired two years ago. Metzler said Caritas Christi decided to punish him after discovering he had sent a supportive e-mail to Susan Labus after she was passed over for Metzler's job and complained to hospital officials she was the victim of gender discrimination.
