GROTON, Conn. (AP) — Groton’s former schools superintendent has asked two state agencies to help him get his job back.

The Day of New London reports  that Paul Kadri has filed a complaint with the state Freedom of Information Commission, arguing the meeting at which he was placed on administrative leave last year was held illegally.

He also filed a complaint with the state Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities. He says he has bipolar spectrum disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder that may lead to some of his actions being misconstrued.

Board President Kirsten Hoyt would not comment, saying the matter is being investigated.

The school board fired Kadri on March 5 for alleged mistreatment of employees. The school board had ordered an investigation into claims he was bullying, harassing and intimidating employees, mostly women.
