An Edgerton woman who says her boss told her she made too much money for a woman files a federal discrimination lawsuit.

Ruth Schomber is suing Wisconsin Community Bank, she says when she asked her boss at the bank's Monroe branch for a raise and a bonus in January of last year he said no because he said she made too much money for a woman.

Court records show male employees at the same branch received raises and bonuses in that same year.

The lawsuit seeks unspecific compensation and punitive damages from Wisconsin Community Bank.
