A discrimination claim filed against against Minneapolis Public Schools was unsubstantiated, according to the Minnesota Court of Appeals.

John Saulsberry, who is black, claimed that the school district discriminated against him based on his race and age when it excluded him from the candidate pool for school principal positions. 

The appeals court heard Saulsberry's case after he sued the district in 2013. In district court, Saulsberry, 54, identified three individuals who were ultimately hired as principals or assistant principals. The district said all of them were African American. The court ruled that Saulsberry failed to present any evidence of discrimination.
