DOVER, Del. (AP) - A federal magistrate has ruled against a former Appoquinimink High School principal who filed a discrimination lawsuit against the school district.

The judge on Tuesday granted summary judgment to the district, ruling that Felicia Duggins had failed to prove that she was the victim of racial discrimination, disability discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act, or retaliation for taking medical leave.

Duggins served for two years as Appoquinimink High School's first principal, but she received poor performance and leadership evaluations and was demoted in 2009 to assistant principal at Middletown High School.

Duggins claimed that she was treated unfairly because she suffered from anxiety and depression, exacerbated by a hostile racial climate, and that she was discriminated against because she is black.
