Two dropped from school lawsuit

Wrongful termination case goes on

        COVINGTON — A former Covington Independent Schools secretary has dropped the superintendent and a former school board member from her lawsuit alleging wrongful termination, breach of contract and harassment.

        But the suit against the school system continues. She seeks unspecified damages.

        Linda Sue Fries of Florence, who had been the secretary for former superintendent Jack Kemp, filed the lawsuit Jan. 3, 2001, in Kenton Circuit Court against the school district, the Covington school board, Superintendent Jack Moreland and former school board member Joe Meyer.

        Mr. Moreland and Mr. Meyer were dismissed from the lawsuit late last month after a request by Ms. Fries.

        On Tuesday, Ms. Fries's lawyer, John S. “Brook” Brooking of Florence, said his client did not receive any settlement to remove the men from the lawsuit. The dismissal is based on “multiple factors,” which he declined to discuss.

        Ms. Fries was fired in 2000 for unauthorized personal use of her computer when Mr. Moreland replaced Mr. Kemp. In the lawsuit, Ms. Fries said she had done so with Mr. Kemp's permission.

        Mr. Moreland said Ms. Fries was the only person he terminated when he became superintendent.
