Rejection of Threesome Proposition Allegedly Leads to Firing of Probationary Teacher Carisa Gaylardo

Below is petitioner Carisa Gaylardo’s petition, captioned Gaylardo v. City of New York et al. (Index No. 14100400), seeking relief – including back pay, reinstatement, and rescission of her termination and “U” rating – from the City of New York. (Media coverage here.)

Petitioner was allegedly terminated for having an “inappropriate” relationship with a student. She alleges, however, that the allegations are based, in part, on a statement by a teacher (Sofia Memos) whose proposition for a “threesome” petitioner rejected.
