With Freddie Gray firmly in place as president of the Omaha school board, attention is turning to how the board attorney handled the Nancy Sebring situation.
Omaha school board member Justin Wayne said Tuesday that the board should invite other law firms to submit proposals to provide the district's legal services.
Wayne said he is concerned about the advice that contract attorney Elizabeth Eynon-Kokrda of the Baird Holm law firm provided Gray after the two officials learned the Omaha Public Schools' superintendent-to-be had resigned her last job over racy emails she sent on a school computer. Sebring resigned the OPS job June 2 after newspapers published stories about the emails.
He said he is also concerned about how much the district pays for legal services.
Wayne, who backed an unsuccessful attempt to remove Gray from the board presidency Monday, said he's not sure he wants to replace Baird Holm at this time, but he wants to see what other law firms can offer.
