ATLANTA — Atlanta firefighters again have asked Mayor Kasim Reed to enlist outside investigators to look into allegations of cheating by black firefighters on a promotion exam.
Their appeal follows a civil trial judgment against the city on Friday, when a Fulton County jury found the city's Department of Human Resources didn't fully investigate the allegations.
