A federal magistrate judge in Duluth has ruled that Gold Cross Ambulance did not discriminate against a Superior combat Marine who claimed he was demoted and harassed when he returned to work as a paramedic after four years of military service.

Chad L. Lisdahl filed a lawsuit against Mayo Medical Transport, doing business as Gold Cross Ambulance, and supervisor David B. Johnson in U.S. District Court in 2007.
