N.D. Aviation Business Operator Sues Airport Director for Discrimination

March 11, 2016

A woman who operates an aviation business at the Minot, N.D., airport has filed a federal discrimination lawsuit against the airport director who quit last week after spearheading construction of a new terminal.

Eva Lucke, formerly known as Eva Rojas, accuses airport director Andrew Solsvig and the city of Minot of demanding unfair lease terms because she’s a Latina woman.

Lucke’s attorney, Robert Martin, says the suit “could be solved in 15 minutes on the computer.”

Solsvig resigned just days after a $43 million terminal opened. He told the Minot Daily News that he’d been thinking about a new job for several months but decided to wait until the terminal project was complete.

An attorney for the city did not respond to a phone message seeking comment.
