School Aide Suing NYC

Interesting story from today's edition of The New York Times.

Back in September, an occupational therapist ferociously devoted to disabled children in her public school was suspended for 30 days on charges so flagrantly trumped up that Vladimir V. Putin would blush to bring them. The therapist, Debra Fisher, has helped children to soar from wheelchairs.
Last week, pro bono lawyers representing Ms. Fisher sued the city, demanding that the suspension be overturned and the charges purged from her record.Included in the legal filing was this disclosure: The Education Department is “redoing” the original investigation after it became the subject of skeptical coverage in The New York Times and The Daily News. “It’s practically unheard-of,” said a lawyer representing Ms. Fisher, Joel Kurtzberg of Cahill Gordon & Reindel.
