Here's a news item from the Associated Press and the Idaho Press-Tribune: NAMPA, Idaho (AP) ― A nutrition services worker who was fired from the Nampa School District has taken the first step toward suing the district, filing a $1 million tort claim over his dismissal. The Idaho Press-Tribune (http://bit.ly/RCEdKh) reports that Todd Young filed the tort claim last month, contending he was harassed and then fired in May after he talked about waste in his department in a local television news report. In the report, Young said the school district wasn't saving money as planned because workers were discarding Styrofoam trays meant to be recycled. District officials released a statement saying that Young was fired for making racial remarks about a minority. Young is asking for no less than $1 million and his reinstatement in the job.
