Former teacher’s lawsuit set for trial

BOONEVILLE – A former Booneville School District special education teacher will have her day in federal court March 29, 2010.
Kathy Anderson Lamb filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in October 2008, claiming that the school district violated her First Amendment right of free speech and also violated federal and state public policy.
Lamb said her contract to teach special education students was not renewed because of a stance she took against using corporal punishment on a severely autistic child.
She asked for a jury trial, which is set to be heard by U.S. District Judge Sharion Aycock.
