Teacher to Sue School District

A deaf physical education instructor can go forward with his ADA lawsuit. A California agency has given him the green light to sue his school district. Karl L. Glover says a the principal at Tomas Rivera Middle School in Mead Valley discriminated against him. Glover says his problems started when the principle made a joke about his condition at a meeting. Since then, Glover says the district has refused to let his wife act as his interpreter at meetings (he doesn't know sign language, but reads lips), ignored his request for a listening device and written him up more than a dozen times for small infractions.
