The Cincinnati field office of the Federal Air Marshal Service faces a Congressional inquiry after being named as the defendant in six civil rights lawsuits and 15 EEOC complaints. U.S. Rep. Ed Towns, D-N.Y., and U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., have called for the investigation.
Three of the six suits are still pending. Two have been settled for undisclosed amounts.
One has been withdrawn while a federal review takes place. It could move back to the courts after the investigation is completed.
