Principal sues parents for critical letter

(AP) — The principal of a public middle school in Richmond is suing four parents for a letter critical of the school’s leadership and climate.

Lucille M. Brown Middle School Principal Denise R. Lewis is seeking $3 million in compensatory damages, as well as punitive damages and attorneys’ fees.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that the lawsuit was prompted by a letter published in Style Weekly.

Lewis said the four conspired to “maliciously” injure her and her reputation.

The four defendants were part of a group of several dozen parents who wrote a letter that was published in Style’s online edition in July 2013.

No trial date has been scheduled.
