GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A former doctor in eastern Wisconsin has filed a lawsuit in federal court, claiming he was fired because of racial discrimination.

Pakistani physician Zulfigar Ali was let go by the Calumet Medical Center two years ago.

That was after a patient died. Ali claimed in his suit that he was let go because of his race.

The suit names the medical center and the Affinity Health System and Medical Group of Menasha as defendants.

The case was filed in federal court in Green Bay.
