By Todd Martin

Victoria Coleman, a former associate principal and teacher at Collins High School, has filed suit against the Shelby County Board of Education and Superintendent James Neihof for sexual discrimination.

The suit claims that Coleman was discriminated against because of her gender and that actions were taken against her in retaliation of her opposing treatment and reporting of unwanted sexual advances from former Collins Principal Anthony Hatchell.

Jeffrey Walther of Walther, Roark and Gay, PLC of Lexington is representing Coleman, and he declined to comment on the case.
