A former high school teacher is suing a central Michigan school district over her dismissal, which she claims was because she's a lesbian and led a club that celebrated Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered Month.
She claims the evaluations resulted in her contract not being renewed in 2011, CBS Detroit reports.
