An Ocean View School District employee has filed a lawsuit against the superintendent and board of trustees claiming they pressured her to resign and harassed her because of her age and sexual orientation.
Holly Marvin, 49, a communications supervisor for Ocean View, filed the lawsuit Aug. 19 and is seeking $1.5 million in damages. In addition to the school board — specifically naming Trustees Debbie Cotton and Tracy Pellman — and Supt. William V. Loose as defendants.
According to her attorney, Betsy A. Stansell, the district broke an agreement to let Marvin move to Maryland, where her wife got a job with the Department of Homeland Security, and do her job with Ocean View electronically on alternate weeks.
