Law firm returning fees to district

March 29, 2012

An Indianapolis law firm investigating a former superintendent for fraud said it will reimburse about $435,000 in legal fees to the Wayne Township school district where he worked. Bose McKinney & Evans had signed off on contracts that led to former superintendent Terry Thompson's taxable income increasing to almost $2.2 million in 2010 after he retired. The district’s lawsuit against Thompson claims that he defrauded the school out of millions of dollars in compensation and made changes in his contract in order to hide it.
