Indemnification Of School Board Member's Legal Fees Ordered

An elected school board member was entitled to indemnification of legal fees in defending a censure resolution, according to a decision issued today by New Jersey Appellate Division.

The conduct at issue involved the school board member's actions in response to a student "walkout" in reponse to budget cuts.

The court held that the censure process was a "legal proceeding" and thus was subject to an indemnification obligation. (Mike Frisch)
