Court Allows Ombuds' Lawsuit Against Little Rock Superintendent

On November 16, the federal trial court ruled that James Washington, the former ombuds for Little Rock School District, may proceed with his discrimination suit against the district superintendent. Washington has alleged that he was demoted to classroom teacher based upon his race and in retaliation for his efforts as an ombuds. The citation is Washington v. Brooks, 2006 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 83698 (E.D. Ark. Nov. 16, 2006) [no link available]. [Ed. note: Washington was appointed to ensure fairness in student discipline cases and was a presenter at the 2001 USOA conference.]
