Lakewood School District Sues its Former School Board Attorney
The Lakewood School District is reportedly suing its former attorney to prevent him from representing students in lawsuits against the district.
According to the Asbury Park Press, the district accuses Michael Inzelbuch of an “impermissible and nonwaivable conflict of interest” in representing special-education lawsuits to get alternative and more expensive educational services.
Inzelbuch is currently representing two autistic 7-year-old twins in the district, a case a Superior Court Judge in Tom River has refused to remove him from.
Inzelbuch served the district for over a decade but was replaced with another attorney when his contract wasn’t renewed in 2012.
