Fears Lawsuit Against PCSC Dismissed
A U.S. District Judge in Evansville dismissed a lawsuit Wednesday filed against the Pike County School Board by former Otwell Elementary School Principal Rick Fears.
Among other things, Fears alleged his dismissal by the Pike County School Board last year breached the terms of his teacher's contract.
Fears was fired for falsifying student attendance records and failing to complete teacher evaluations.
Fears was also accused of violating privacy laws by releasing standardized test results with student names.
In granting the school corporation's motion for summary judgment, U.S. District Court Judge Richard Young said the lawsuit's dismissal was lawful, fair and supported by substantial evidence.
