OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma City-based charity Feed The Children is now countersuing former CEO J.C. Watts for payments it made to settle another lawsuit over a job offer that was rescinded.
The Oklahoman reported Sunday that Feed The Children is seeking more than $75,000 from Watts for settling a lawsuit by attorney William Blew III.
Blew sued the charity in January, saying he accepted an offer to become the organization’s attorney, then was told the position had been eliminated. Feed The Children says Watts knew the position was eliminated when he offered Blew the job.
Watts, a former U.S. congressman, sued Feed The Children in April, alleging he was fired after nine months as CEO because he notified the state attorney general’s office of irregularities by the charity.
