Last Friday, Fernandez's legal counsel provided six exhibits to support their case.

Guam – It appears the multimillion dollar lawsuit Superintendent Jon Fernandez filed against the Board of Education is still slated to continue.

 

Last Friday, Fernandez's legal counsel provided six exhibits to support their case. Exhibits one through six are all media reports from last fall dated right after the board's controversial termination of the superintendent.

Attorney Delia Lujan Wolff cites these news stories as proof that the Education Board was attempting to impair Fernandez’s reputation and standing in the community. Wolff claims leaked details of the board's investigation included charges of immorality, particularly, an alleged affair between Fernandez and a female employee, allegations of sexual harassment levied by a former JP Torres student, alleged circulation of nude photographs of a teacher, and alleged harassment of a disabled employee.

This information was publicly disclosed, Wolff claims, and ultimately, deprived the superintendent of his 14th Amendment rights. Wolff argues that these factors are reason alone to deny the Guam Education Board's request and continue with the ongoing lawsuit.

The full opposition is provided in the attached documents.

    If the board members who voted to remove Fernandez were under the assumption he'd drop the case of reinstated, they were dead wrong. There are consequences for everything we do and those members should be held accountable for character assassination at the least. Good move Fernandez!
