$2,000 settles teacher's civil case against Barrington School District
 

Issue Detail:

 
This is a follow-up to my earlier posting regarding the $200,000 civil settlement reached in 2008 between nine former Barrington middle school students and the Barrington school district arising out the girls' claims regarding a "sexually hostile environment" at the Woodland School. See http://ogtf.lpcnj.org/2009101qs/ Today, I learned that Richard Morgenroth, the teacher who the girls claimed engaged in sexual harrassing conduct, settled his own suit against the Barrington school district in February 2008. In his complaint, Morgenroth claimed that the girls conspired with former superintendent Nelson Maloney and teacher Mary Spaeth to communicate false allegations against Morgenroth. According to Morgenroth's suit, these "false, grossly negligent and exaggerated allegations" were reported to the police, causing him to endure a three-day trial which ended in his favor. In his suit, Morgenroth also accused some of the girls and their parents of referring to him as a "Jew Bastard" and that anti-Semetic discrimination played a role in the way in which he was treated.
