The peace order followed sexual harassment allegations by oboist Katherine Needleman, who filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Her complaint says Carney retaliated against her after she rejected his advances in 2005, and that the orchestra allowed a hostile work environment.
Carney's lawyer declined to comment until he learned more about the suspension. A hearing for the final peace order is scheduled for Tuesday.
