School District Sues Superintendent Over Alleged Salary Overpayments
" PARSIPPANY, N.J. (AP) — A northern New Jersey school district has sued its superintendent in a bid to recover almost $38,000 in alleged salary overpayments he received under a contract the state forced it to rescind.

The Daily Record of Parsippany reports the Parsippany-Troy Hills school district recently filed the lawsuit in administrative court, saying it had no other legal alternative to recoup the funds from Lee Seitz. But the district also claims state officials asked them to take illegal action against Seitz and ignored their requests for clarifications on directives they received.

The district seeks the return of $37,733.73 in its lawsuit, which is tentatively scheduled to be heard on June 18. It was filed as part of a counterclaim by the state to a complaint Seitz filed last year against state officials and the board.

The superintendent alleges that Executive Morris County Superintendent Kathleen Serafino exceeded her authority when she ordered his contract rescinded. Seitz also claims the deal had been approved by Serafino before its terms were publicized "
