PHILADELPHIA — A school supervisor is suing a school district citing, alleging age discrimination and disability discrimination.
Mario Sorgini filed a complaint on April 19, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Wissahickon School District alleging that the school district forced him to resign and threatened him with termination.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, on January 10, 2014, he was threatened with termination because he was accused of allowing an unauthorized person in the school premises, which he says was not true because during that time, the school gave outsiders access to the school grounds.
According to the the plaintiff, he was singled out because of his age and disabilities. The plaintiff holds Wissahickon School District responsible because the defendant allegedly did not focus attention on other employees who brought outsiders inside the school premises.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks back pay, front pay, compensatory damages, punitive damages, attorney's fees and costs, and any other relief the court deems appropriate. He is represented by Reginald Allen of Philadelphia.
