New hearing for teacher suspended for sending nude photos
New Jersey's highest court has ordered a new arbitration hearing for a teacher suspended for using a school laptop to send nude photos of himself to adult women he met online.
The state Supreme Court ordered the hearing on Tuesday in the Bound Brook school district's case against Glenn Ciripompa.
School officials sought to fire him, citing his improper computer use and his alleged inappropriate conduct toward four female staff members.
An arbitrator instead ruled that he should be suspended without pay for 120 days after it ruled the district didn't prove its inappropriate conduct claims.
An appeals court agreed. But the high court says the arbitrator misinterpreted the complaint and a new hearing is needed.
He's still being paid, but attorney Arnold Mellk says the district has told Ciripompa to stay home.
