SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A group of mostly black women who filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against the Napa Valley Wine Train have settled the case for an undisclosed amount.

The group’s attorney, Waukeen McCoy, told the San Jose Mercury News on Monday the two parties reached a settlement last week. He says the settlement amount is confidential.

The 11 women, 10 black and one white, said they had gathered on the train to discuss a romance novel. But before the train left the station in Napa, a train employee asked them to quiet down because they were offending other passengers, the women said.

When the train reached St. Helena, they were escorted off the train into a dirt lot where police were waiting, according to the lawsuit.

    Oh wow… must have been a hell of a law suit, and I’m sure the new crew for the Napa Valley Wine Train, have been briefed on diversity training, and the consequences 🙂

    Hey pecker Johnson, did you know that instead of spitting it out, your moms actually swallowed the best part of you? He, he, what an insecure, pea brained, needle d**k nutless loser you are. You have a need to come onto a black website and hurl what you think are insults, but all you’re doing is showing that you’re nothing more than a scared, wimpy little boy, that knows your population numbers are dwindling, and that there isn’t a wall, gun, disease, or law can stop the fact that you are quickly becoming the MINORITY. DEAL WITH IT!
