On March 24, 2010, Principal Hunt and his employer, The Public Schools of Robeson County(PSRC), met in Benson, North Carolina. The reason for doing so was because Mr. Hunt filed a lawsuit against his employer so that he might receive Workers Compensation as he believed the shooting to be work related. Principal Hunt filed for compensation in April of 2009 after the shooting but his claim was DENIED by his employer! His employer claimed they were in no way liable for any compensation because he was on his way to work when he was shot. Therefore, Principal Hunt found it necessary to take this act of injustice to the North Carolina Industrial Commission. During the pretrial discovery it was confirmed that Principal Hunt's employer did pay him a travel allowance twice a year as part of his salary for services rendered in connection with his role as principal. The matter was heard before Mr. Philip A. Baddour, III, Deputy Commissioner for the North Carolina Industrial Commission.

Read the FACTS of the case carefully and you will see that there have been deliberate smoke screens and mirrors introduced by the employer to try and muddy the case. For instance, the attempt to introduce a document into evidence that had never been seen before by Principal Hunt. Additionally, the school system tried to "switch" or "alter" his contract language during the hearing. Read it for yourself! Moreover, a "Revised" contract was developed by his employer AFTER the filing of his Workers Compensation claim. Of course, the existance of this newly revised contract was denied by the school system during the trial on March 24, 2010!
