MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The Bibb County Board of Education has filed a lawsuit against their former Superintendent of Schools.
It was filed today in Federal court.
The lawsuit claims former Superintendent of Schools Romaine Dallemand and three companies committed Fraud and Racketeering against the school district.
The lawsuit also says in 2012, Dallemand didn’t have the board’s approval when he reportedly used 7-million dollars of SPLOST money to buy a server and computer equipment, the school district says it can’t use.
School Board President Lester Miller said, “Some of the things in that complaint we want to hear the story. We want to hear the whole story. I think our stake holders have the right to know what happened to those SPLOST dollars and those adversely affected our students.”
The school district is suing for 22-million dollars.
Board members say they have put measures in place to make sure situations like this don’t happen again.
