NASCAR CEO France fights to keep divorce private

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The head of the closely held company that stages NASCAR races is fighting to keep the public out of hearings and documents related to a North Carolina battle with his ex-wife over their high-dollar divorce settlement.

The state Court of Appeals is scheduled Tuesday to hear NASCAR chairman and CEO Brian France’s reasons why the judges should keep closed court proceedings that are generally open to the public.

France’s search for secrecy involves a dispute over whether the woman he married and divorced twice violated confidentiality and other provisions of their 2008 divorce agreement. Megan France’s attorneys say her ex-husband’s lawyers reported in open court that the confidential agreement included her receiving $9 million, alimony of $32,000 a month for 10 years, plus $10,000 a month in child support.

Wake school superintendent’s job security unclear

CARY, NC (AP) — The future of the superintendent running North Carolina’s largest school district may be on the line, with the Republicans who hired him saying they are disgusted with what’s going on.

The Wake County Board of Education held a three-hour closed door session Monday to discuss a personnel issue, and they’re scheduled to resume Tuesday. Three of the Republicans who hired Superintendent Tony Tata when they were in the majority say they’re angry about events behind closed doors they’re not allowed to discuss.

The former Army general was hired to carry out a new classroom assignment plan over Democratic opposition. GOP board members’ decision to scrap the old plan that featured racial diversity led to protests, arrests, a federal civil rights complaint, and a threat to high schools accreditations.
