Fox court documents allege 'conspiracy'

An attorney for Huron superintendent Fred Fox has filed court documents outlining an alleged "conspiracy" to get Fox fired.

Nov 12, 2012

The 37-page document is a narrative of why and how Fox believes three school board members have conspired to oust him from his top spot at the school. Fox was ousted after a law firm hired by the district issued a report alleging Fox carried on an improper business relationship with a district vendor, improperly submitted expenses for reimbursement related to a April 2011 trip to Arizona, and was involved in an extramarital affair on school time using school computers and email.

Nice to see you poking your head out of your hole again !

It was a rat analogy genious.. Rats top to bottom. If you could actually decipher on the level that it was written, you would have seen it as the compliment to the teachers that it was. I din't know you would resurface or I would have dumbed it down.


Yes, I poke my head out of my hole. Now pull your head out of your a** !



That's rich, you call TDN a parrot yet you're the one who does nothing but squawk ! Squawk ! Squawk !



You call TDN a parrot yet all you ever do is squawk ! Squawk ! Squawk !

Compare our posts, Ugta..
You, like TDN, have nothing to add here. My suggestion, and it's only a suggestion, is for you to really try to come up with something original that PROVES that Fred Fox did something wrong. I really hate to harp on this, but your heroes are criminals.

Get busy Ugta.. I will be amazed if you can come up with anything besides your usual: Oh Sold you suck.. Sold you squawk squawk.. C'mon pal..

Attention !
All of you fans and supporters of the 3 rogue board members..

Kevin Asher stands to gain what from this injunction ?
1) Not one dollar, (That apparently he could have bought a bus with)..
2) Popularity.. (Right)
3) The start of his re-election campaign.. (Not advisable)

So line up and tell all of us where Kevin Asher stands to gain from this injunction ?

Let me repeat, (hahaha.. repeat), what HE WILL GAIN: Self respect.

Kevin Asher does not want Huron Taxpayers to pay for an illegaly generated slanted piece of garbage that allows all of you to have an opinion, (but you/we want to pay $60,000 for it right Retardee ? It will make it true. Wait.. Why don't we buy 60,000 buses with that money ? I hear the stand in super may be interested in selling some to pay his legal fees ? Maybe he, like Retardee doesn't know that only the board can sell busses. Even for a dollar.

**Sorry deputy super.. You may be a fine mercenary, but you sure picked a heck of a place to pick up that huge check that the current BOE gave you because the pickings for a new/stand in super were pretty slim when they found out about you 3.


Asher wouldn't recognize self respect if it bit him in the butt but thanks for the laugh ! Do you feel important now that you've called Retiree retarded ? You sure do show your intelligence by slipping in insults about the deputy superintendent. You da man, Sold !


kevin asher's injunction is simple. Sidetrack the minds of those deciding on the problem at hand.

lets lead them on a wild goose chase and not worry about the wrong things done by mr fox.

AX SOLD this is the oldest trick in the book. A good judge, and a good defensive lawyer will tell them lets stop the foolishness and get right down to the facts.

Explain why you used the schools email to conduct an affair with a women from fremont

Explain your absentees

Explain the golf discounts

After all we cant just throw this under the rug. Hard working tax payers deserve the answers.

Ax Sold ? Are you talking to me ?

Learn to spell and puncuate and I will answer..

Hahaaha.. Just kidding pal. It's all been explained and I won't risk the wrath of the group here by re-explaining it just for you.

Here's a very short version which should lead you back to the beginning where it says COMMENT 1. Read from there !

Emails: Allowed to use.
Golf: Allowed to be discounted.
Absentees: Never happened.

Post again when you catch up !


Except the department of education says that emails for personal use is a big no-no ! Someone posted a link on a previous post a month or so ago. He did take a day not related to the arizona conference and did not report it as a vacation day. That was in records on a register link, you moron !

Ακόμη Sold σχετ...

I'm the moron ? Haahhaa.. Oh please.

Ugta.. No more wasted time on you.

You read something from some lawyer and it's true. Right ?

So read the supporting document on this thread. Words from a lawyer that actually are true.

Fred Fox did nothing criminal, but when this is over there will be fines paid.. but not by Fred Fox.


ako sold,

answer in yes or no please.

Did Fred Fox get discounted prices to play golf? yes or no

Did Fred Fox use school email to have a relationship with a fremont principal? yes or no

you dont need to explain anything else, a simple yes or no if you would please.



Ako Sold doesn't have the ability to give a simple answer !

Sold: Just out of curiosity, who in this "conspiracy lawsuit" is being represented by the Akron (or is it Cleveland) law firm of Hannah, Campbell & Powell? Wasn't Murray supposed to state that in his Certificate of Service? Who also is the attorney from that firm that is representing whoever? Wasn't Murray supposed to state that, too? After all, one doesn't hire an entire law firm.


A certificate of service is a form of proof of service and need only state the date and method of delivery. It does not need to name a person or who they represent - only where it was delivered to. While it would be a courtesy to the viewing public to name the attorney and who they represent, it is not required.

Julie R.

If a Certificate of Service needs only to state the date and method of delivery and where it was delivered to but does not have to give the name of the attorney or the name of the party that the attorney is representing, how would that be proof that the other parties and their attorneys have been served?

Rule 29(5a) states: Proof of service shall contain, or be accompanied by, a statement that all parties required to be served have been served, together with a list of names, addresses, and telephone numbers of counsel indicating the name of the party or parties each counsel is representing.


What Rule 29(5a) are you referring to?

Julie R.

Instead of asking me what Rule I'm referring to, why don't you direct me to the Rule that you are referring to that says a certificate of service need only to state the date and method of service and does not need to name the attorney or the person the attorney is representing.

Ακόμη Sold σχετ...

Hahaha.. Julie R, are you asking for legal advise on here ?

Drew Legando being listed is the curious part.

Julie R.

I'm not seeking legal advice. I just asked the commenter who gave the Rules on Certificates of Service for the number of that Rule. I honestly have never seen a Certificate of Service like Murray's. I always thought a Certificate of Service had to state the name of the attorney and the name and/or names of his clients.

So once again, who in this fiasco is being represented by that Akron law firm and who is the attorney from that firm that is representing him? Don't any of you Huronites on here know the answer? You all certainly seem to know everything else!


Wow,it looks like Sold's so called friend are not as many as he thinks. Sold, go back and read what was said. The protocol for selling a school bus is in the Ohio Revised Code. The code states who can sell the buses and it is not the superintendent. Since Fox gave his approval to sell the bus for a dollar, he violated the law. Not only was he wrong, he ordered a mechanic to change the oil and fill the vehicle with fuel. This was done at Huron's taxpayer's expense. Then the person who drove the bus to its unknown destination, put in for mileage, round trip,and a meal. This was also on the taxpayer's dollar.
This is a violation of the Ohio Revised Code. That is why helicopters were ordered by the state to search for the missing bus. Also, the title to the missing bus is not in the perpetrators possession.
I would like to inform you that "self phrase is no phrase". You are showing exactly how much education you really have by calling people names. It is time to grow up and start acting like a man and stop retrogressing back to your younger years. You must realize that this matter is completely out of your hands. Whatever you say in trying to convince everyone that you are right is not working. My mind is made up along with everyone else, whether Fox is guilty or not. Is it "not" in my power or yours to decide what his punishment will be. I feel sorry for the Huron taxpayer because they want the school system to be financially stable. Prior to the investigation,taxpayer dollars were be spent for everything purchased in threes. Three weed trimmers, three chain saws, three sets of tools. These are only a few items that were purchased in threes. Then two thirds of those tools came up missing, police were involved, an arrest was about to be made. Then it was squashed by the super, the cameras were turned off and the tools returned. That is like getting caught with your hand in the cookie jar. This became known as "toolgate".

Julie R.

So what's the big deal about a school bus and tools and the Ohio Revised Code? I mean, it's not like anybody in Erie County ever follows the O.R.C., anyway. Attorneys sure don't. Neither do your Erie County public officials. (a good example the former auditor that authorized a fraudulent transfer of property that caused serious defects in the title and a former recorder that knowingly filed fraud documents) In fact, your Erie County courts don't follow the O.R.C. laws, either. (they don't even follow the Rules for Professional Conduct much less the law)

Great post ! And now you will definately receive my respect because it was as respectful as I think you can muster on this whole subject.

I do not comment on 'Toolgate' because for one thing it is not a part of why Fred Fox is in the crosshairs for this termination.

For another thing, you surely seem to know a whole lot more about it than I do.

The third reason I have not talked about this is what I told you before: The superintendent does not sell school busses.

Now.. What I have heard is this was the old band bus which was owned by the band, but stored by the school. That bus was definately not used to transport students anymore and had already been sold to the band for $1, years ago.

Listen, Retiree.. You and I both know this whole thing is out of our hands, but the opposistion wants to continually go over the lies that have been spread. I am just opposing their view and also their 'facts'.

You keep yelling about 'bottom feeders' and all I see is attorneys on all sides doing their jobs and ultimately getting paid by Huron's taxpayers. They are only doing what the are paid to do and you and I are actually in agreement that there are lawyers that are 'bottom feeders'. In this whole mess, though, the worst of the scum suckers are the football coach and his 3 minions.. I mean Huron BOE members who are causing the 'bottom feeders' to have a job.

Huron's schools are financially stable for now. And since the lawyer's fees will probably be paid for through the school's liability insurance this isn't the big problem, either.

I know you don't even live in Huron, but I believe Huron's taxpayers deserve much better leadership from our board than what this one is giving. The only thing most people know about Fred Fox, or 'Toolgate', or anything else we have all spent time discussing is because of the illegally ordered Markling report which is full of half truths and even worse Markling's slant on the truth. So.. The document that this whole line of 'cospiracy' discussion is about, needs to be read by the same people who formed their opinion(s) because of the Markling report.

I don't know about the arrests and the helicopters.. lol.. but I do know that having read both reports and knowing what I know.. The 'Conspiracy' report is a whole lot more accurate than the Markling report. Not an opinion, just the facts man.

I appreciate your civility in your last post and will always return civility with civility.

ps.. The people who post here call me names, spell badly, tell me how terrible I am every time I do just what they do. I don't care. A man's career has been compromised by some innaccurate stories that were made public by a man committing a crime by doing it. And his 'bottom feeder' told him not to.



It has not been proven that there is anything illegal about the Markling Report. Time will show if it is or not. You don't know that it is so drop the "illegal" part !



Sold will never acknowlege the truth on this one. But the truth is that Freddy boy and the bus garage supervisor have a friendsip that goes back to high school. That relationship is what got the supervisor hired and promoted. Freddy Boy also has a friendship with Kevin Asher that goes back to high school. Asher has even been part of the previous "team building outings". Just a bunch of good old boys thinking they are deserving. Either Sold on Nonsense is clueless or is a part of this crooked bunch.


Ummm..... Part of the old boys club is more like it, being a family tradition

Ακόμη Sold σχετ...

Not even close, fellas..

How about if I just woke up one day and read the Markling report and that's all I really knew ? Wait.. That's you !

(Jimmy Blodgett is in fact the Transportation Supervisor and yes an old friend of Fred's. Seems to me that at least we get some work out of Fred Fox's friends unlike those old criminals that are the coaches old friends ?)
