GREAT FALLS, MONT. (NMB) – Earlier this month, a judge dismissed a lawsuit alleging harassment filed by Ronald Walker, a former employee of the Rocky Boy Health Clinic. Magistrate Judge John Johnston dismissed the case without prejudice subject to re-filing after Walker exhausts his remedies with the Chippewa Cree Tribal Court.
The lawsuit was brought against the Rocky Boy Health Clinic, CEO Jessica Windy Boy, and the Chippewa Cree Tribe for gender discrimination and retaliation.
Walker, who is representing himself, claims that the harassment happened in early February, about two months after he was hired as a Project Coordinator and Data Manager for the Health Clinic. He claims he was forced resign as Project Coordinator for the Zero-Suicide grant program due to Windy Boy’s retaliation, bullying, intimidation and harassment against him.
