The Buffalo School District has won another round in its legal fight with two school administrators fired for lacking state certification.
In the latest ruling, U.S. District Judge Frank P. Geraci Jr. dismissed the breach of contract and defamation suit brought by Faith Morrison Alexander, a former chief of school leadership for the district.
Last month, Geraci also dismissed a similar suit by Yamilette Williams, former chief of curriculum.
Williams and Alexander were fired in 2014 when it was revealed they did not have the required state certification. The two women responded by filing civil suits in Buffalo federal court.
Williams and Alexander plan to appeal.
