Luis Aguilera sues fired memoir

Luis Aguilera probably thought he'd left his childhood affair with a teacher behind. After all, it happened when he was 13, and his memoir, in which he recounts details of the relationship, was published over a decade ago. But Aguilera believes that he was fired from his own teaching post in 2009 because a parent had concerns about the book. Now he's suing the Chicago public school district for more than $300,000.
