Three federal lawsuits are making their way through the U.S. District Court in New Orleans after being filed against Archer Daniels Midland over the racist actions of a shipyard supervisor.

The Advocate reports Edward Collins was fired from his job in Waggaman after swinging a noose at a group of black laborers who had been discussing the removal of Confederate monuments in New Orleans.

He's alleged to have had a history of bullying blacks, but the lawsuits contend ADM failed to take immediate action against Collins when informed of the June noose incident captured on cellphone video.
