LAWSUITS NEWS & LEGAL INFORMATION
Crestwood School District
Ellyn Herrington worked as a substitute teacher since 1998 and twice sought a full-time appointment from the district. The 46-year-old substitute teacher filed a federal age discrimination lawsuit against the district for allegedly favoring younger applicants in choosing hires for 16 teaching positions that were open in 2002. The lawsuit claimed Crestwood School District chose younger applicants, including some who were not certified to teach. The school district denied Herrington's allegations, but has paid her a $150,000 settlement. The school district also agreed to hire Herrington as a Fairview Elementary School teacher beginning in the 2007-2008 school year. (Dec-28-06) [
