HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF)- A Grissom student is suing Huntsville City Schools and Superintendent Dr. Casey Wardynski.
A Birmingham civil rights attorney filed the legal documents on Monday.
The city of Huntsville confirmed they received the documents on Tuesday.
The suit stems from an incident between a Junior ROTC instructor and a Grissom student.
That student claimed the instructor preached to her class about why homosexuality was wrong after she said she wanted to move to San Francisco in the future.
In the court documents, the student's attorney said the JROTC instructor's comments fostered a hostile environment, the student felt threatened by the instructor, and the student has experienced severe emotional trauma because of the incident.
The court documents go on to say the Huntsville Board of Education and its employees did negligently, recklessly, and carelessly cause injury to the student.
