ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New information shows an attorney was hired to look into accusations of intimidation and retaliation involving former Albuquerque Public Schools Superintendent Winston Brooks before he resigned.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://goo.gl/X82x6V) that the district Wednesday released a new document on the mysterious departure of Brooks after a public records request from the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government.

The document, a prepared statement that board President Analee Maestas read to board members over the phone in July, revealed plans to hire attorney Agnes Padilla to investigate the allegations.

Brooks resigned Aug. 15 after the board agreed to buy out the last two years of his contract for $350,000.

Both sides declined to elaborate on his resignation.
