Former superintendent sues Beebe, state officials

A superintendent fired during a state takeover of his cash-strapped school district has sued Gov. Mike Beebe and other officials this week for $500,000 in damages saying they violated his three-year contract.

Though former Pulaski County Special School District Superintendent Charles Hopson’s contract stated he could be terminated for “good cause,” he claims he was never given notice of a fireable mistake before his June 20 termination, according to The Republic.

Hopson accepted the position in July 2010 with a contract set to expire in June 2013.
