    PROBLEMS MOUNT Issues of re­sponse times and missed calls aside, the Led­yard Vol­un­teer Am­bu­lance Ser­vice is also dealing with an in­ter­nal le­gal dis­pute. One of its members has filed a dis­crim­i­na­tion complaint based on gender, a bi-polar condition and a perception of post-trau­matic stress dis­or­der.
