$3M topless photo discrimination lawsuit allowed to continue in federal court

A former Bellport teacher scored a legal victory after she says she was fired when a topless photo of her was circulated among students.
An attorney for Lauren Miranda says her $3 million discrimination suit against South Country/Bellport public schools and its superintendent Joseph Giani has been allowed to proceed in federal court.
The 25-year-old says she texted the picture to her boyfriend at the time - another teacher in the district - and somehow students got their hands on it.
Miranda's attorney says the school is discriminating against her for being a woman.
A call to the district wasn't returned, but in the past, South Country's superintendent told News 12, "The district does not comment on active litigation."
