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.
