Planned Lawsuit Would Seek to Prevent David Jones Jr. from Taking JCPS Board Seat

If David Jones Jr. wins a seat next week on the Jefferson County Public Schools board, attorney Ted Gordon will file a lawsuit seeking to prevent the former Humana chairman from taking office, a spokeswoman for Gordon announced on Thursday.

The suit would claim that Jones has conflicts of interest that make his ineligible to serve on the school board. 

Last month, Jones responded to the conflicts of interest charge, saying, "“It’s a ridiculous charge. I mean the school board didn’t vote on these things so I’m confident that I will be able to serve."

The suit would be filed on behalf of Thomas D. Armistead, who lives in District 2, where Jones is seeking office, the lawsuit said.
