State v. Tucson Unified School District (sex/retaliation)

October, 2008

This is an action brought under the Arizona-Civil Rights Act to correct an unlawful employment practice, to provide appropriate relief to an aggrieved person, and to vindicate the public interest. Specifically, the State brings this matter to redress the injury sustained because Tucson Unified School District ("TUSD") discriminated against Cheryl L. Townsend by retaliating against her when she opposed conduct which she reasonably perceived to be discrimination in violation of the Arizona Civil Rights Act, Arizona Revised Statute § 41-1464(A) and filing a charge of discrimination.
