LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Jefferson County Public School teacher said he's being discriminated against because he is gay.

On Tuesday, he filed a lawsuit against his principal.

James Fletcher is a science teacher at Moore High School on the Outer Loop.

The suit alleges that Fletcher was passed over for promotions because of his sexual orientation and was no longer teaching his own classroom.

The lawsuit states because of the discrimination, Fletcher sought medical attention.

JCPS officials will not comment on the matter. They said it's pending litigation.
