The Des Moines school board has selected a local law firm to represent two employees in litigation brought by former superintendent Nancy Sebring.
Tuesday night the district selected Bradshaw, Fowler, Proctor and Fairgrave P.C. to represent Phil Roeder and Patricia Lantz. Sebring filed suit against the pair along with the former board president Teree Caldwell-Johnson in June.
All three are accused of invasion of privacy, emotional distress, and conspiracy.
Sebring claims they conspired to release personal e-mails to the media. The suit alleges the defendants leaked the story about her sending sexually explicit e-mails using her school district account, to the Omaha World Herald and that forced her to resign from the job she was about to take in Omaha.
A trial date hasn’t been set.
