Lawyers for Ashley Payne and Barrow County Schools succeeded in reaching an agreement last Thursday regarding a dispute over information demanded by the school district. As a result of the agreement, a hearing which had been scheduled for Friday, April 30 was canceled.
Superior Court judge David Motes ordered the hearing early last month after the school district filed a motion requesting that Payne be compelled to “respond sufficiently” to the district’s interrogatories and request for production of documents.
Payne’s attorney Richard Storrs objected to several of the questions saying the information requested was irrelevant and had “no bearing on whether Ms. Payne’s resignation was a voluntary and informed decision.”
According to Storrs, he and Payne considered many of the questions to be an invasion of privacy.
Former AHS teacher Ashley Payne claims she was forced to resign after posting vacation photos on Facebook which school administrators found objectionable.
