(THE CITY PAPER, NASHVILLE) β€” An Australian chef is suing the Belle Meade Country Club for discrimination based on his nationality.

According to the complaint, Richard Jones worked at the club for more than a year and claims the executive sous chef at the guarded country club repeatedly berated him. The lawsuit was moved from Davidson County Circuit Court to U.S. District Court on Thursday.

β€œOn numerous occasions, the Executive Sous Chef made comments regarding Australia and its characteristics, such as its people being unrefined, undeveloped and that it is a backwards nation,” the complaint reads.
