ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - As Albuquerque news outlets fight for records pertaining to the resignation of Albuquerque Schools Superintendent Winston Brooks, depositions show he was investigated after a number of complaints.

Brooks resigned from the post in August after the board bought out the last two years of his contract.

KOB-TV and the Albuquerque Journal filed a public records lawsuit in January to obtain records that contain the reason for Brooks’ resignation and buyout. Filings from that lawsuit show that the school board began investigating Brooks after nine employees reported they felt their rights were violated and that they felt intimidated or feared retaliation.

According to testimony those complaints came in for months. School board president at the time Dr. Analee Maestas says she kept the reports to herself at first before finally notifying the board that claims had been made against Brooks.
