A jury  this week found the Mattituck-Cutchogue School District discriminated against Anthony Claudio due to his age but not his gender when it fired the special education teacher in 2009.

The eight-member jury awarded Mr. Claudio $70,000 in back pay Monday. He was not awarded liquidated damages or damages for emotional distress.
