CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Former Wyoming Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill has filed a defamation lawsuit against Republican U.S. House candidate Tim Stubson, of Casper.

The lawsuit centers around posts on Stubson’s campaign Facebook page in response to a query about his position on a 2013 law that removed Hill from the Wyoming Department of Education for about a year, until the Wyoming Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1LN4eWQ) that the lawsuit says Stubson posted a reply that Hill had committed many illegal acts that weren’t disclosed publicly.

Hill seeks damages and costs incurred from the lawsuit. She also seeks immediate court action to stop Stubson from commenting on the matter.

Stubson declined to comment specifically on the lawsuit but says he has the right to political speech.
