New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 13, 1994, New Braunfels, Texas Federal court rules in favor of Comal ISD Sunday March HeraldZeitung S A Editors Note The following is the official response from the Cotnal inde pendent School District to previous news reports concerning the discrimi nation suit brought by Maria Terpen ing and On May a discrimination case Maria Terpening et al vs Comal ISD et al was filed against Comal ISD individual board members and administrators The premise of the orig inal complaint was stipulated as a class action lawsuit This is a status update to report the finding of the Fed eral Court and Magistrate to date With respect to the Class Action basis there is no certified class class representatives and the Federal Court has not allowed any class against the Comal ISD or other named Defen dants After two separate time extensions and more than seven months from fil ing this lawsuit the Plaintiffs could not meet their legal requirements to contest Comal ISOs request for dis missal Consequently on Jan the Federal Court dismissed the Indi vidual Board Members and Plaintiffs claim for Intentional Infliction of Emo tional Distress This ruling completely vindicates the Individual Board Mem bers of any and all allegations or wrongdoing Moreover the Honorable Mag istrate Judge Robert B OConnor recently recommended to the Federal Court that charges against Individual Administrators also be dropped This action exonerates these Defendants of any unlawful allegations These rul ings are favorable to all Individual Defendants and the Comal Indepen dent School District On or about Jan 21 1994 Plain tiffs filed another Motion seeking the Courts permission to file a supple mentary report of Discrimination The Honorable Magistrate Judge reviewed Plaintiffs Motion and the Report of Discrimination denied Plaintiffs Motion and refused admission of the Report of Discrimination into the case On Jan 24 1994 Plaintiffs filed another Motion for the Court to recon sider dismissal of the Individual Board Members excluding Thomas Bruce and Douglas At the regularly scheduled Board meeting on Dec 13 1993 Mr Kirk made and Mr Bruce seconded a motion to leave the posi tion on the Board vacant and fill it in the regular election in May of 1994 The motion failed in a 3 to 3 vote This action made it possible for Mr Potter to return at any time to the Board under the Texas Constitutional holdover provision The Comal Independent School Dis trict had previously obtained legal counsel regarding the Potter because there was a question concern ing the holdover provision and the effect it would have on Mr Potters daughter seeking employment with the district In early December 1993 Comal Independent School Districts attor ney Paul W Hunn gave his opinion on Mr Potters ability to reclaim office Said reclamation was and is com pletely lawful In fact no one produced any written legal statement opin ion controverting Comal Independent School Districts actions Moreover Mr Potters decision to return after his daughter was employed in another district to office was his alone It was not the function of dis crimination or conspiracy The holdover provision is in fact a Con stitutional requirement concerning school board and other elected offi cials The Comal Independent School Dis trict and its Board Members wish to dispel as unfounded any rumors and innuendoes concerning conspiracies patterns policies and customs regard ing illegal activities Additionally previous news releas es have alluded to gag orders being issued to Board Members regarding dialogue with the press The Comal ISD Lawyer William W Krueger III Wright in the discrimi nation case has in fact asked the Board to refrain from making public state ments regarding issues in the case just as Plaintiffs lawyers have advised their clients Its as simple as that As Mr Krueger continues to pur sue the facts with the Courts the Dis trict is confident the outcomes will continue to show that the Comal Inde pendent School District as well as its elected officials and employees is committed to providing the best and most economical education to all its students regardless of race color creed sex national origin a com mitment reinforced by the Federal Courts recent Recommendations and Orders BROOKS MOTORS AUCTION CO Collector Car Auction March 18
