NEW YORK (CBS 2) – There ‘s a new chapter in the story of two female romance language teachers fired for allegedly having sex in a Brooklyn classroom.

The Department of Education last month fired language teachers Alini Brito and Cindy Mauro after a janitor allegedly found them topless in an empty classroom at James Madison High in Midwood in November.

However, court papers filed Wednesday in connection with a lawsuit said Brito was suffering from the effects of her diabetes and that Mauro was giving her candy and sugar to alleviate her condition.

The lawsuit seeks $2 million.
