Sussex Tech School District Settles Wrongful Termination Lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP/WBOC)- A school district in Sussex County, Del. has settled a lawsuit brought by a former employee contending the district engaged in copyright infringement and wrongfully terminated him.
Sussex Technical School District reached a $95,000 settlement with Tom Keeton earlier this year, before a state audit found evidence of widespread financial impropriety within the district.
Keeton, who taught Ability to Benefit students at Sussex Tech's Adult Division school, filed the lawsuit in 2015. The lawsuit states district employees had copied textbook materials totaling in excess of $500,000 without permission from the publishing company. Court documents state Keeton was fired shortly after bringing a list of copyright violations to principal Terri Corder.
Corder is no longer principal, and administrators didn't respond to an Associated Press member's requests for comment.
