 CHARLOTTE, NC — CMS legal counsel George Battle, firing back after he says a school board member is spreading a lie about him and Heath Morrison.

In an open letter to the board Wednesday, Battle says that a board member has told reporters that he initiated the misconduct investigation into Morrison because Morrison didn’t like Battle’s plan to reorganize the legal department.

Battle attached the closed session meeting minutes from September 23 where Morrison says he supports Battle’s plan.  Battle goes on to say, “I do know the identity of the board member who has disseminated this lie… let me be clear, I will not be intimidated or bullied by you or any other person for doing my job.”

Battle concludes by challenging that unnamed board member to caucus the other members and fire him if needed.
