TISD Being Sued By Employee

  TISD and its superintendent have been named in a racial discrimination lawsuit. Gerald Barnes, an African-American, filed the suit claiming he was discriminated against when he was demoted to Supervisor of Transportation and his pay reduced. The plaintiff also claims Superintendent David Simmons inflicted emotional distress on him when Simmons allegedly retaliated against him for questioning his job evaluation. TISD denies all the claims.
