LOS ANGELES (AP) — A former executive is suing the Chivas USA soccer team, claiming she was the target of discrimination because she wasn't Latino and couldn't speak Spanish.

The Torrance Daily Breeze (http://bit.ly/140qDrV ) reports the suit was filed in Los Angeles by former human resources manager Cynthia Craig, who is black.

The suit says Craig left the Southern California team in July after repeated harassment by owner Jorge Vergara and team President Jose David.

Messages seeking comment from Chivas representatives weren't immediately returned Thursday.

It's not the first discrimination lawsuit against Chivas.

Two former youth coaches sued the Carson-based team in May, alleging they were fired because they aren't Mexican or Latino.
