ST. LOUIS — A former employee is suing the Special Administrative Board of the School of St. Louis and St. Louis Public Schools, citing alleged abuse of discretion.
Nicholas May filed a complaint on Dec. 21 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against the defendants alleging that they violated the U.S. Constitution.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that as a result of the defendants' actions, he has suffered and will continue to suffer damages and irreparable harm for loss of employment, and loss of wages and benefits.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly failed to comply with their own regulations by determining that he should be suspended without pay and be terminated from his employment without providing him the opportunity to defend himself at a hearing before the board.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury; and seeks an order finding that his suspension and termination were unreasonable and unauthorized by law, award for back pay and benefits, costs of this action, attorney's fees, and all other relief that is just and proper under the circumstances. He is represented by Daniel J. Nolan and Jeremy Hollingshead of Hollingshead & Dudley in St. Louis.
