BISD asking court to make two board members to pay for filing lawsuit last year
The Beaumont school district is going after two board members and asking a court to make them pay thousands of dollars for trying to get documents.
Attorneys for BISD want Judge Mickey Shuffield to order Mike Neil and Tom Neild to pay for filing a lawsuit last year.
In their suit the board members said the district and one of its lawyers withheld documents linked to the superintendent's pay raise.

The judge dismissed the lawsuit and now BISD wants the board members to face sanctions.
The judge says he'll make a decision within a week.
