The attorney for a Howard County teacher who won a racial discrimination lawsuit against the school system two years ago has filed a motion to have herself removed from a current lawsuit, claiming that her client's actions have "blindsided her." The motion filed May 22 by Dawn Martin, a lawyer based in Washington, to have herself removed as Michelle Maupin's attorney has been granted. Maupin agrees that she needs new representation. "She was doing more to help the defense than she was to help me," Maupin said.

The Howard County Board of Education asked a Circuit Court judge yesterday to overturn the verdict in a discrimination lawsuit won by a former Centennial High School English teacher. If Judge Lenore R. Gelfman does not reverse the decision, the school board wants a new trial or to have the award of damages to Michelle Maupin capped at $100,000. In July, a jury awarded Maupin $237,000 in compensatory and punitive damages for harassment she said she experienced. The school board is responsible for $225,000 of the damages, while former Centennial Principal Lynda Mitic must pay $6,000, English department leader Margaret Polek $5,000, and current Principal Scott Pfeifer $1,000.

The title of the latest Theatre Project children's show, Siddown, presumably stems from the fact that the show's two performers do just that -- repeatedly. First, Gregory Maupin and Abigail Bailey Maupin (Gregory's wife) sit in two small, folding chairs facing the audience. Then they get up and angle the chairs in another direction and "siddown" again, and then they do it a third time and a fourth. Siddown continues through April 22 at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St. $11-$16. 410-752-8558 or theatreproject.

The Howard County Board of Education has until Jan. 3 to decide whether to appeal a recent decision by a Circuit Court judge in a discrimination lawsuit won by a former Centennial High School English teacher. In the decision, Judge Lenore R. Gelfman upheld the jury's verdict in the case but reduced the amount awarded to Michelle Maupin by $62,000 because of an error that improperly awarded damages for the same acts based on both state and federal statutes. "It was an impermissible double recovery," said Maupin's lawyer, Mike Coyle.
