“Manchester resident Heather Murchison, mother of Coffee County Central High School student Nico Sanfilippo, has filed a lawsuit against Director of Coffee County Schools Dr. Charles Lawson and the Coffee County Board of Education.
The complaint alleges the mask mandate approved by the school board violates state law. At the Aug. 10 board meeting, the Coffee County School Board approved a statement requiring the use of masks in district facilities.
“This is something everyone should be on board with,” Murchison said. “Your views on mask vs. no mask have no weight here.”
This is a law issue, said Murchison.”
