PHOENIX (CN) - A black, Jewish principal claims a charter school fired her after subjecting her to intolerable treatment: setting up a Holocaust exhibit outside her office, forcing her to walk past a swastika and "to go into the gas chamber in order to go into her office."Millicient McNeil sued the Mission Charter School in Maricopa County Court.She claims the school board ignored her complaints about the swastika in the hall, along with a photo of a lever used to drop chemicals into gas chambers, and the words "Majdanek Bad Und Desinfektion"-referring to the "bath and disinfection" gas chamber at the Majdanek concentration camp.McNeil claims the school's conduct was "extreme and outrageous" and that it "either intended to cause emotional distress or recklessly disregarded the near certainty that such distress would result from the conduct."...McNeil seeks $750,000 in general and compensatory damages, and $1.25 million in punitive damages, for breach of contract, wrongful termination, and negligent supervision, among other claims. She is represented by Lisa Aubuchon of Tempe.
