A former New Jersey substitute teacher who lost his job for handing a Bible to a student last fall has filed a wrongful termination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, according to The Express-Times.



In the complaint, Walk Tutka alleges religious discrimination and retaliation by the school district when he was terminated from the approved district substitute list for the rest of the 2012-2013 school year, The Express-Times reports.
