Razzano suing school district, Sarandrea

NEW CASTLE — With alleged sexual harassment complaints under investigation, a New Castle school official is suing the district and its superintendent.

New Castle Junior High principal Robert Razzano today filed a lawsuit against the New Castle Area School District and superintendent John J. Sarandrea, contending the district did not properly follow policy procedure in investigating complaints of sexual harassment that reportedly were lodged against Razzano by seven employees.

His Pittsburgh-based attorney, Avrum Levicoff of the Levicoff, Silko & Deemer law firm, filed the complaint in the Lawrence County Court of Common Pleas.

In tomorrow’s edition of The News, reporter Debbie Wachter will have complete details about the lawsuit, and information from a letter Sarandrea wrote to Razzano setting his hearing date.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
