Former School District Official Sues District

By Jim McCoy Thu 11th October NewsCentral Point School Districtlaw suit
The former business services manager for the Central Point School District has filed a $1.4 million lawsuit against the district, alleging she was wrongfully fired. Vicki Robinson's court documents state she was let go last year because the school board had been biased against her for years and the superintendent feared he would lose his job if he didn't fire her. The school district states it fired Robinson because of poor business practices, including a $1.5 million budgeting error in 2011. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Medford. The Medford Mail Tribune reports that lengthy depositions reveal years of animosity between Robinson and board members, with some holding Robinson responsible for another employee's alleged embezzlement in 2009 that may have led to that employee's suicide.
