DETROIT-  The parents of a boy with Asperger's syndrome who was filmed trapped in a chair at school say they may file a lawsuit over a teacher seen taunting the boy.

Their lawyer says they have no recourse since the Goodrich School District did not follow through on its initial plan to fire the fifth grade teacher.

Instead the district voted to suspend Nicole McVey for a year.

The video was recorded last November at Oaktree Elementary and was released to a TV station four-months later. 

The president of the school board says he has no comment on the threat of the lawsuit.
