CHICAGO - Attorneys made their opening statements Monday in a trial involving Lincoln Park High School's ex-principal.
Former principal John Thuet filed a federal lawsuit after he was fired amid an investigation of alleged misconduct within the schools' athletic department.
Thuet filed the suit in 2020, saying he hasn't been able to find a new job since. He also says he was subjected to emotional stress and deprived of due process.
The DA argued that Thuet failed to follow proper policies to protect students.
