June 1-- The federal case of Christopher Bowman versus the Montgomery County Board of Education is moving closer to trial.
The case was filed in 2008 by former Montgomery County teacher Christopher Bowman who claims he was fired in retaliation for reporting alleged sexual misconduct between a faculty member and a male student at Montgomery County High School.
Federal Judge Dudley Bowen, Jr. has approved a motion from both attorneys extending the deadline to file pre-trial motions to June 17th.
Bowman is represented by Newnan attorney Robert Trammell while the school board's attorney in the case is Christian Steinmetz of Savannah.
Observers say the case could go to trial this summer at the federal courthouse in Dublin.
