Edison Principal Files Sexual Orientation Discrimination Lawsuit Against School Board

Posted on

Attorney R. Armen McOmber of McOmber & McOmber, P.C., is representing a school principal in his lawsuit against the Edison Board of Education, which he claims denied his contract renewal due to his sexual orientation. In June 2017, the employment discrimination lawsuit was filed in the Middlesex County Superior Court, alleging that a school board member persuaded the rest of the board to not reinstate the former principal’s job by submitting a letter to the administration that defamed the principal. The letter referred to him using an anti-gay slur, alleging his behavior was a potential issue, and stated that he needed to be removed from his position.

The devoted school principal, who is currently working for the Livingston School District, lost his job in Edison in May 2017, despite receiving only positive reviews since his first year in 2015, as well as the superintendent’s recommendation that he remain in his position. Court documents cite a denial of wrongdoing by the school board.
