Judge May Hold School District In Contempt

A northeast Nebraska school district may be held in contempt of court for failing to obey a judge's order to refund a tax overpayment.

According to reports District Judge James Kube has ordered all members of the Nebraska Unified School District No. 1 school board to appear at an April 24 hearing. Kube says they are to show why they shouldn't be held in contempt of court.

Kube scheduled the hearing after learning the district - made up of Clearwater, Orchard and Verdigre schools - has not complied with an order to repay Charles Cook of Verdigre.

The district has said it is impossible to do so. But the judge says Cook could at least be given credit for his overpayment in subsequent tax years.
