AC Board of Education Off the Hook in Liability Suit

A federal jury in Camden cleared the Atlantic City Board of Education of liability in a lawsuit filed by a former employee who claimed his job was eliminated as retaliation for not cooperating with political agendas. The Press of Atlantic City reporting that
Dewane Parker, the former district supervisor of security and truancy, was hired in 2001 and fired in June 2015 along with more than 220 other employees as part of larger budget cuts that year. After a two-week trial in Camden this month, the jury unanimously found that retaliation was not a motivating factor in the board’s decision to cut Parker’s position.
