EL CENTRO — A lawsuit filed last year by former Calexico Unified School District superintendent Maria Ambriz alleging wrongful termination is expected to be served on the district in the coming days.

Though the lawsuit had initially been filed in December with the county Superior Court, the district had not immediately been served with the lawsuit in the hope a settlement could be reached, said local attorney Ryan Childers, who is serving as plaintiff’s counsel.
