LAS VEGAS (AP) - The nation’s fifth-largest school district is facing a lawsuit from formerly tenured teachers who say they were wrongfully fired.

KLAS-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1grXA9S ) more than two dozen teachers say the Clark County School District violated their constitutional rights by firing them without hearings in 2014 after they received two consecutive years of unsatisfactory evaluations.

A 2011 law says a hearing isn’t necessary to fire tenured teachers.

The lawsuit filed last month argues 15 educators had their rights violated when the district stripped them of tenure earned before the law went into effect.

A district spokeswoman said she couldn’t comment on pending litigation.
