New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 13, 1994, New Braunfels, Texas Sunday, March 13,1994 ■ HerakJ-Zeitung ■ 9 A Federal court rules in favor of Comal ISD (Editors Note: The following is the official response from the Comal Independent School District to previous news reports concerning the discrimination suit brought by Maria Terpen-ing and others.) On May 28,1993, a discrimination case (Maria Terpening, et a1 vs. Comal JSD, et a1) was filed against Comal ISD, individual board members, and administrators. The premise of the original complaint was stipulated as a “class action” lawsuit. This is a status update to report the finding of the Federal Court and Magistrate to date. With respect to the “Class Action” basis, there is no certified class and/or class representatives; and the Federal Court has not allowed any class against the Comal ISD or other named Defendants. After two separate time extensions and more than seven months from filing this lawsuit, the Plaintiffs could not meet their legal requirements to contest Comal ISD’s request for dismissal. Consequently, on Jan. 13,1994, :he Federal Court dismissed the Individual Board Members and Plaintiffs :laim for Intentional Infliction of Emo-ional Distress. This ruling completely vindicates the Individual Board Members of any and all allegations or wrongdoing. Moreover, the Honorable U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert B. O’Connor recently recommended to the Federal Court that charges against Individual Administrators also be dropped. This action exonerates these Defendants of any unlawful allegations. These rulings are favorable to all Individual Defendants and the Comal Independent School District. On or about Jan. 21, 1994, Plaintiffs filed another Motion seeking the Court’s permission to file a supplementary 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 reconsider dismissal of the Individual Board Members (excluding Thomas Bruce and Douglas Kirk). At the regularly scheduled Board meeting on Dec. 13, 1993, Mr. Kirk made, and Mr. Bruce seconded, a motion to leave the position 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 District had previously obtained legal counsel regarding the “Potter issue,” because there was a question concerning the “holdover” provision and the effect it would have on Mr. Potter’s daughter seeking employment with the district. In early December 1993, Comal Independent School District’s attorney, Paul W. Hunn, gave his opinion on Mr. Potter’s ability to reclaim office. Said reclamation was, and is, completely lawful. In fact, no one produced any written legal statement and/or opinion controverting Comal Independent School District’s actions. Moreover, Mr. Potter’s decision to return (after his daughter was employed in another district) to office was his alone. It was not the function of discrimination or conspiracy. The “holdover” provision is, in fact, a Constitutional requirement concerning school board and other elected offi cials. The Comal Independent School District and its Board Members wish to dispel, as unfounded, any rumors and innuendoes concerning conspiracies, patterns, policies, and customs regarding illegal activities. Additionally, previous news releases have alluded to gag orders being issued to Board Members regarding dialogue with the press. The Comal ISD Lawyer, William W. Krueger, III (Wright & Greenhill), in the discrimination case has, in fact, asked the Board to refrain from making public statements regarding issues in the case just as Plaintiffs lawyers have advised their clients. It’s as simple as that. As Mr. Krueger continues to pursue the facts with the Courts, the District is confident the outcomes will continue to show that the Comal Independent 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, and/or national origin — a commitment reinforced by the Federal Court’s recent Recommendations and Orders.
