Douglas County school board leaders call perjury allegations ‘partisan,’ ‘baseless’

The Denver Gazette: Douglas County’s two school board leaders said Tuesday that allegations that they committed perjury were “partisan” and “baseless,” and they characterized them as an effort to derail the board’s work. 

But the accusations have drawn the attention of local law enforcement, and the district attorney who oversees Douglas County said in a statement that the Sheriff’s Office “currently has an open investigation.”

The response is the latest in a legal — and very public — battle between the board and county resident Robert Marshall, who filed a lawsuit in February accusing the board of violating the state’s open meetings law in the lead-up to terminating its then-superintendent.
