The Journal News reported today: Custodian suing New Rochelle schools in noose-complaint case (click here)
The school district today was served with a federal discrimination lawsuit from a middle school custodian who says school officials responded inadequately to his complaints about his former supervisor’s hanging nooses in management offices…
In a deer caught in headlights response:
Superintendent Richard Organisciak said he had not seen the lawsuit but said complaints about the district’s response about the incidents were “surprising.”
Does this sound familiar?
Kelly (Plaintiff’s Attorney) said the district’s response to the matter was inadequate – taking months before disciplining Carino and implementing diversity training. Johnson said the district was trying to hide the matter from the public.
Several parents last year said the district was trying to cover up the matter, only learning about the incident when it was reported in the media – months after the incidents occurred.
“That’s nonsense,” Organisciak said. “I don’t want to dignify that with a response to be honest with you.”
Mr. Ali better be careful and behave nicely or Richard will not play with him anymore.
For those who missed it, here is some background on this story reported on New Rochelle Talk of the Sound back in November of last year:
