The Bibb County school board unanimously agreed to a settle a lawsuit from a Macon attorney for $1,758 at a board meeting Thursday night.
The amount doesnt delineate whether the settlement goes toward legal fees or other specific costs.
Daryl Morton sued the system in December, saying he waited more than a year for a response to his Open Records request. He also followed up twice on his request in the spring of 2012.
He requested Bruce Elementary fax logs, e-mails and documents related to the Bibb County Democratic Party and specific people, alleging school fax machines were used to distribute damaging information about him.
Morton quit his post as chairman of the Bibb County Democratic Party in November 2011.
In other business, the school board once again tabled the decision to pick a permanent board president. With that decision, the board will enter the second quarter of the year without a permanent leader.
In January, the eight board members were deadlocked between Lynn Farmer and Wanda West but never made a decision.
Susan Sipe, who was elected as board treasurer in January, has been serving as interim president since then.
I think sometime everyone will have the discussion when everyone has a clear head, said board member Jason Downey, who made the motion to table the vote on the president.
