Round Rock, TX asked in Civil Litigation, Civil Rights and Education Law for Texas

Q: Can a lawsuit be won based on opinion?

Some parents at my kids school filed complaints against a coach and the Superintendent removed him from coaching duties. They hired an investigator who found no legal wrong doing. The Superintendent claims he removed him because he fears a lawsuit if the coach were to not play on of the kids or removed them in a game. The parents apparently said that to him.

A: Lawsuits are often won or lost on opinions, despite the fact that it can result in outcomes that are not always fair. The coach could present these facts to a Texas employment attorney to discuss if he has legal remedies worth pursuing.
