Sensabaugh amends lawsuit against Washington County Schools

Zach Vance, Johnson City Press • May 1, 2018 at 9:45 AM

Attorneys representing Gerald Sensabaugh and Washington County Schools have filed a flurry of motions and documents in the last month in regard to a $5 million federal lawsuit the former David Crockett High School head football coach filed against the school system earlier this year.

Sensabaugh is alleging Washington County Schools officials violated his free-speech rights when he was suspended last fall after he took to social media to raise various concerns related to the school system.

The latest filings follow Director of Schools Kimber Halliburton’s March 15 decision to officially terminate Sensabaugh’s employment, based on allegations that he used profanity in front of his players and engaged in unprofessional conduct.

On April 6, Sensabaugh’s attorney, Buck Dougherty, filed a motion requesting the court allow his client to submit an amended complaint in light of his termination.
