LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - An administrative hearing on the status of Lafayette Parish schools Superintendent Pat Cooper has been canceled pending a decision by a judge on whether three school board members should be barred from voting on charges against him.
The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/ZUIaTP) District Judge Durwood Conque has hearing Thursday to consider a lawsuit by Cooper to disqualify the three board members from voting.
The school board had planned to consider Tuesday five complaints against Cooper, who faces possible termination related to the claims against him.
Cooper is asking a judge to disqualify board members Hunter Beasley, Tehmi Chassion and Mark Babineaux from voting in any administrative proceedings based on their alleged bias against him.
