ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A discrimination lawsuit has been filed against the City of St. Louis and its police department.

Three black sergeants and the Ethical Society of Police claim the city’s police department passed over the sergeants in favor of white candidates for a promotion to lieutenant in 2014.

The lawsuit is seeking lost wages and punitive damages.

An attorney for the city declined to comment on the lawsuit.
