West Virginia's former state school superintendent has filed a second lawsuit contending she was unfairly fired.
Marple was fired in November 2012. The lawsuits claim that she was unlawfully fired and that members of the Board of Education secretly plotted to oust her. She singles out former board president Wade Linger as a co-defendant in her latest filing.
The lawsuit seeks relief including for the loss of reputation among her peers, loss of ability to get another job of equal stature, and mental anguish.
Board members hired James Phares as superintendent in December 2012 to replace Marple.
