No appeal in million dollar lawsuit

August 22, 2005

Albany -- A Dougherty County school board member loses his million dollar lawsuit against a construction company for defaming him, but says he will not appeal.

 Saturday afternoon a Dougherty County jury found in favor of Beers-Moody Construction company, after a two-week long civil trial.

David Maschke asked for more than one and three-quarter million dollars, after he was fired in 1997 by the Construction Company as the architect in their renovation of West Town Elementary School.

This happened before Maschke was elected to the school board.

The jury could not agree on claims that Maschke was not paid for the work he had done before being fired.
