In court filing, Douglas County school board lawyers say leaders didn’t ask former superintendent to resign

The Denver Gazette: In a court filing Monday, the attorney for the Douglas County school board disputed that their clients asked their then-superintendent to resign, and they urged a judge to allow the case to proceed to a January trial.

The filing is the first legal response the board has had since county resident Robert Marshall in June released a tape of board leaders meeting with then-Superintendent Corey Wise six months ago.

The tape shows board President Mike Peterson and Vice President Christy Williams telling Wise they are committed to changing leadership in the school district and that if Wise doesn’t step down, they will initiate proceedings to have him fired.
