Teacher Awarded $1.7 Million in Lawsuit with Oak Ridge Schools

John Edward Anderson III, a teacher who sued Oak Ridge Schools in federal court, was awarded more than $1.7 million by a jury this week, the Columbia Daily Herald reports. Anderson sued the school district and its head administrators for wrongful termination, breach of contract, defamation, lack of due process and an invasion of his privacy. Anderson retired from the Oak Ridge district in 2015 amid a series of allegations, which related to the sleeping arrangements of a high school track trip that had upset parents.
