Former NFL quarterback
John Elway

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A former employee is alleging workers were routinely subjected to racial discrimination at a California car dealership partially owned by former Denver Broncos star John Elway.

In a lawsuit filed Monday, a former sales manager at John Elway's Manhattan Beach Toyota alleges he and other minority employees were denied promotions and opportunities based on their race.

Timothy Sandquist says he didn't get a promotion he deserved despite eight years of successful employment because he is Black. He was instead made to work the job without earning the title or a raise.

Sandquist alleges the dealership's general manager used ethnic slurs against Black, Latino and Middle Eastern employees.

A lawyer for the dealership, James McDonald, says the lawsuit appears to have numerous inaccuracies and the allegations don't appear to have merit.
