DC Attorney General files lawsuit

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) --  DC's Attorney General filed a lawsuit against three former managers of a DC Public Charter School for at risk youth.

The suit also names WUSA9 anchor JC Hayward, who was the chair of the Options Public Charter School's board of trustees.

The suit claims Dr. Donna Montgomery, Dr. David Cranford and Paul Dalton used two-point-eight million dollars in District public school funding to fund their private companies.

The suit says Hayward assisted those managers by signing contracts in her role as chairman of the board.

No criminal charges have been filed.

JC Hayward told WUSA9 she did nothing wrong, and all she did was sign bills in her capacity as chair of the charter school's board, and that she received no money. She says she resigned from the school's board last week.

WUSA General Manager Mark Burdett says Hayward has been relieved of her duties at WUSA pending further investigation.
