CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- Michael Taylor's fight with the Chappaqua Central School District continues.

Taylor, an assistant principal at Horace Greeley High School, has filed a lawsuit in Westchester County Supreme Court after the district suspended him for two years without pay. Taylor had previously sued the district last year, citing racial bias. Taylor is the district's only black administrator.

In his filing, Taylor claims the suspension was retaliation for his lawsuit against the district. Taylor was charged with misconduct, conduct unbecoming of an administrator and neglect of duty.

According to The Examiner , Taylor was charged with bringing his mother to work without permission, leaving his undergarments to dry on a chair in his office during school hours and interrupting class while sporting a Santa Necktie.

It was also recommended Taylor undergo a mental health evaluation.

On July 12, the school board hired the law firm of Shaw, Perelson, May, and Lambert to represent itself in the suit.
