A Federal Judge has now ruled that Montrell Greene, Former Greenwood School Superintendent was denied his constitutional right to a hearing after being terminated by the school board 3 years ago.
Senior U.S District Judge Glen Davidson in Greenville says Greene was entitled to a pre-termination hearing, and found no reason to hold a trail on the merits of Greene's lawsuit.
Greene was hired as Superintendent back in 2013, with a 3-year contract at an annual salary of $146,000.
He says his contract was extended twice for an additional year based on his performance, and evaluation.
Greene is seeking $5.2 million in compensatory and punitive damages.
Greene tells the Delta News, "I am pleased with the judge's ruling. I've been patiently waiting for this news for some time now."
