Oklahoma City School Board wants lawsuit transferred to federal court

The Associated Press - August 6, 2019 1:57 pm

Board member Charles Henry.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma City School Board wants a lawsuit filed against it by a board member transferred to federal court.

The board’s request filed on Monday and first reported by The Oklahoman says the case involves federal questions of free speech and due process.

Board member Charles Henry has asked that a temporary restraining order issued by an Oklahoma County judge to stop the board from discussing his conduct be made permanent.

Henry also wants to stop the board from renaming the now closed Northeast Academy High School as Classen School of Advanced Studies.

The restraining order stopped a planned board discussion last month on possible discipline against Henry that cited no specific violations. Henry voiced several complaints about the district via social media, but he has deleted his Twitter account.
