On July 4, 2018, Judge Brenda K. Sannes of the NDNY denied summary judgment in the case of Colistra v. Cairo-Durham Central School District. Against opposition from the School District, the Court ruled that Ms. Colistra, the former Director of Special Education and Curriculum and Instruction, was entitled to a trial on her claims of sex and age discrimination, concluding that there were issues of fact for a jury to decide as to whether she was belittled in her position because she was female and whether she was retaliated against because she asserted that the District operated as a “boys’ club.”
Teacher will go to trial in sex and age discrimination lawsuit.
