I have just learned that, last month, the parties reached a settlement in Stan Murmer’s wrongful-termination lawsuit against his former employer.  As you may recall from prior reports on his firing and on the denial of the school district’s motion to dismiss, Murmer had been fired from his teaching job after the district learned that, in his spare time, Murmer “created paintings by using his posterior and other body parts as a stamp with which to imprint paint onto a canvas.”  Murmer, who was represented pro bono by the ACLU, will receive $65,000 under the terms of the settlement.

I apologize for the delay in getting you this important information.
