A settlement is reached between Kanawha County Schools and a former high school vice principal who claims he was wrongfully terminated.
Pete Corbett was initially suspended in 2007 from George Washington High School after he supervised a student cookout outdoors on a day GW students were supposed to stay inside.
After years of disagreements with school board, Superintendent Ron Duerring said Corbett was being insubordinate and suspended Corbett indefinitely. Then in 2008, Corbett resigned hours before he was to be fired.
Corbett filed the lawsuit in 2010 and asked for compensation for lost wages, legal fees, and mental distress.
Duerring said the settlement does not admit liability, but rather it prevents the case from dragging out in court.
