Yuba City, Calif.--Two months ago we told you how a Yuba City High School teacher was placed on administrative leave following allegations of sexual misconduct, and now an alleged victim has come forward with a lawsuit.

The teacher at the center of this lawsuit is Jim Whiteaker and before being placed on leave, taught physical education. Whiteaker is also the Sutter County Supervisor for District four.

Also named on the lawsuit is current superintendent Doreen Osumi and former superintendent Nancy Aaberg.

The alleged victim who filed this lawsuit is a 14-year-old female student.

The case surrounding this student happened back in January when the student reportedly nudged her friend with her foot.

At which point whiteacker allegedly grabbed the girl's behind, telling her "You kick her, I touch you".

But the lawsuit alleges complaints against Whiteaker go as far back as 1993.

The lawsuit claims several laws were broken when the school district failed to act and kept Whiteaker employed despite several instances alleging sexual misconduct reported to the district.

Whiteaker remains on administrative leave, but back in February during a special board meeting, the Yuba City Unified School District directed staff to begin the process of formally firing him.

We did reach out to the school district asking for comment on this lawsuit but they have not gotten back to us.
