Breach of Contract/Defamation
A former president of a nonprofit education association
filed a lawsuit against the organization. She claimed she
was ousted from her position and wrongly banned from ever serving on the board. She also alleged the executive board embarked on a smear campaign that affected her ability to perform her full-time job with the local school district and secure future nonprofit board positions.
The matter ultimately settled for a nominal amount,
plus an agreement by the claimant not to run for a
position on the board for 10 years. Defense fees and
costs exceeded $40,000.
