LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A southern New Mexico school district now headed by the recently fired state secretary of education may face a legal fight from its former superintendent.
    
The Las Cruces Sun-News reports the Las Cruces Public Schools recently released an unredacted resignation letter from outgoing Superintendent Greg Ewing that signaled he intended to file a complaint with the New Mexico Human Rights Commission.
    
Ewing's attorney alleges in the letter that a school board member created a "hostile work environment."
    
The school district declined to comment.
    
Ewing submitted his resignation via letter dated Aug. 9 amid infighting with school board members.
    
The board later appointed Karen Trujillo as the district's interim superintendent. She was fired six months into her job as public education secretary by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham.
