Employees file suit against Pulaski schools


Somerset —

The response also says that Napier’s employment at Southern Middle was not renewed at the request of that school’s principal, and that “Napier discussed the reasons with the Principal and did not return to his place of employment after that time, thereby breaching the terms of his contract of employment.”
The answer also says that” after the investigation at Central was complete, Central’s classification as a separate high school no longer existed, the number of students attending decreased and there was no longer a need ore requirement of particular staffing and funding for the positions, particularly those of the Plaintiffs Vanhook and Conley.”
Like Butcher’s, the board’s response says that the compliant failed to state a claim or cause of action upon relief can be granted, and that facts authorizing an award of punitive damages haven’t been alleged. It also says that the Board of Education is a political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and the claims made against it are barred by the doctrine of sovereign, government, and qualified official immunity.
Three answering defendants, Price and both Jim and Phillip Wilson “deny that they took any politically motivated action relating to these Plaintiffs, but any actions that were taken by them were in their official capacities” and that “no employment decision was made by any of these Answering Defendants.” The response further states that the complaint “in this case is without any merit.”
The respective answered filed by Bryson move the court to dismiss the complaint.
