Accusations of sex in the Bound Brook school principal\'s office?
 

Issue Detail:

 
Hon. Terrence Hoben, President and members of the Bound Brook Board Of Education LaMonte Building 337 West Second Street Bound Brook, NJ 08805 (via e-mail only to cdeddy@bbrook.org) Dear President Hoben and Board members: I write both individually and on behalf of the New Jersey Libertarian Party\'s Open Government Advocacy Project. The project seeks to increase openness and transparency in government agencies, particularly at the local level. To that end, we routinely review lawsuits that are filed by and against government agencies, track those suits through to adjudication and post the results on our blog at http://njcivilsettlements.blogspot.com/ We believe that voters and taxpayers have a legitmate interest in knowing why their local government agencies and officials are getting sued and how much those suits are costing them. We also find that we cannot always rely on the agencies themselves to bring such lawsuits and settlements to the public\'s attention. On August 11, 2012, Shari Duddy, who works as a Learning Disabilities Teaching Consultant for the Bound Brook Borough (Somerset County) Board of Education, filed a lawsuit against school officials claiming that she has been the subject of \"a campaign of harassment and abuse.\" The lawsuit, Duddy v. Bound Brook Board of Education, Docket No. SOM-L-0988-11, which I recently obtained in response to my Open Public Records Act request, is on-line here: This type of lawsuit is common, but one of the allegations in Duddy\'s lawsuit makes it stand out from the rest. In paragraph 14.k of her suit, she claims that her supervisor, Director of Special Services Jasmine Brandt, \"falsely and publicly accus[ed] Ms. Duddy of having sexual relations with the principal of a District school in the principal\'s office.\" This allegation, regardless of its truth or falsity, is disturbing and troubling, because one of the following three cases must be true: a. The allegation is untruthful, meaning that Ms. Duddy falsely accused Ms. Brandt of spreading a rumor the she (Ms. Duddy) and a school principal had sex in the principal\'s office, or b. The allegation is is true, meaning that Ms. Brandt spread around a lie about Ms. Duddy and a school principal having sex in the principal\'s office, or c. The allegation is partially true, meaning that Ms. Brandt truthfully reported that Ms. Duddy and a school principal had sex in the principal\'s office. It appears that either a) Ms. Brandt or Ms. Duddy is telling a very nasty lie or b) that Ms. Duddy and a school principal actually had sex in the principal\'s office. In either event, the Board should investigate the allegation and discipline whichever of the two ladies lied, or if the Board finds that Ms. Duddy actually had sex with a principal in the principal\'s office, it should bring charges against both Ms. Duddy and the principal. Would you please discuss this matter at your June 11, 2012 Board meeting? Thank you for your attention to this matter. Very truly yours,
