WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) - A Southbury lawyer has apologized and agreed to pay $750 over her accusations that town officials in Woodbury and Bethlehem were engaged in fraud in a fight over a high school renovation referendum.

Deborah Stevenson faced a motion for sanctions. She read a statement in court on Wednesday withdrawing remarks accusing town officials and their attorneys of fraud and apologizing to a state marshal who had served the lawsuit on her clients’ behalf.

The Republican-American reports (https://bit.ly/1ieYgyE ) that lawyers for the towns of Woodbury and Bethlehem asked for sanctions against Stevenson for what they said was slanderous and inflammatory language.

She accused them of perpetrating a fraud on the court for violating an agreement after a Board of Education committee announced plans in December to proceed with the nearly $64 million renovation project.
