BOISE -- The Garden Valley School District is denying wrongful termination claims filed by its former superintendent.
In June, Dr. Michael Tomlin filed a lawsuit claiming he was wrongfully fired, that his contract was breached, and that the Garden Valley School District did not follow legally required processes for firing a superintendent.
The district says Tomlin was fired in 2011 after months of controversy amid allegations of intimidation and harassment.
Now, the district and school board members have filed their legal response to Tomlin's claims in court.
Amongst the arguments, they say the district fulfilled any contract conditions it needed to, and accused Tomlin himself of breaching the contract.
At this point both sides are demanding a trial by jury.
