Fired Bus Driver Sues Mississippi School District Over Alleged Sexual Harassment, Retaliation

A former Starkville-Oktibbeha Consolidated School District bus driver is alleging she suffered sexual harassment from a supervisor and was later singled out for termination, according to court documents.

Erica Griffin filed a federal lawsuit in the United States District Court for Northern Mississippi on Friday. She claims former Transportation Director Kelvin Gibson sexually harassed her for years and fired her after she refused to drive an extra bus route even though another employee — another female employee who wasn’t fired — had also refused.

Griffin claims she was fired “… in retaliation against her for rebuffing his many sexually harassing advances.”

The complaint, which is only one side of a legal argument, states that Griffin began working for SOCSD in October 2016.
