FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) — Fayetteville Public Schools has responded to a lawsuit regarding records related to former superintendent Matthew Wendt’s firing, saying the records should be made public.
The lawsuit claims the personal privacy of the target of sexual harassment by Wendt is more important than the public’s right to see the records.
The victim said releasing the records will affect her employment and relationship with friends.
But the district said those are personal opinions, and not subject to legal action.
Both parties are waiting on a judge’s ruling on the lawsuit.
