$550K settlement for veteran who claimed National Guard general ‘fostered an environment of white supremacy’


The New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs has agreed to pay $550,000 to settle a lawsuit from a veteran who claimed a National Guard general’s racist attitude cost the vet his job and numerous other opportunities.

George Anderson III sued after his firing in 2015, arguing that Brig. Gen. James Grant “fostered an environment of white supremacy" in the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMAVA). Under Grant’s direction, he argued, he was blocked from promotions and retaliated against him for calling out the discrimination.

“For the first in a long time I can look towards the future, and not what transpired at DMAVA," Anderson said in a statement. “I am very thankful for all of the support I received and I am very glad this settlement finally puts an end to this entire ordeal.”

The state did not admit any wrongdoing in the settlement, but agreed to let Anderson resign so the termination will not mar an employment record his attorney described as “impeccable.”
