ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. -- A former employee is suing a school district, claiming she was fired because her husband refused the principal's sexual advances.

According to our reporting partners at The Elkhart Truth, Deann Schuler worked in Elkhart Community Schools' dietary department.

Her husband Brett was a teacher at Cleveland Elementary.

Brett quit in July 2013 to avoid the situation, and Deann was fired in September.

Now, she is suing for lost wages and emotional distress, among other things.

The school corporation has denied all aspects of the lawsuit.
