Black women ejected from Napa wine train reach settlement
A group of women who filed an $11-million lawsuit against the Napa Valley Wine Train after they were kicked off a tour reportedly for being too loud have reached a settlement with the company.
The group’s attorney, Waukeen McCoy, said the deal was reached last week and is confidential.
Reading club members said they were treated differently because of their race.
The tour company’s chief executive later apologized and promised increased sensitivity training for employees and offered the women a ride in a private car.
