PRESTONSBURG — The former director of the David School has been ordered to repay the school nearly $34,000, following a judge’s order Friday.
Circuit Judge Johnny Ray Harris ordered Danny Greene to repay the school $33,919.33 to cover unpaid taxes from when Greene was still over the school.
Greene did not appear at Friday’s hearing, but did a responsive pleading, which was entered into the record.
In the pleading, Greene says he does not believe he should be held personally liable for the tax bills.
“As explained to the IRS, tax forms were not submitted in a timely fashion due to limited staffing and personal illness,” Greene says in the pleading. “During the fall of 2011, the David School was granted abatement from the majority of the late penalties and put on a payment plan. These payments were being made up until Mr. Greene’s departure from the David School.”
Greene also argued that the school carried “board and officers insurance” on him.
“If the David School believes Mr. Greene has performed an act of omission, the school’s insurance through Brotherhood Mutual Insurance Company would cover such omissions and financial liabilities that might have been incurred,” Greene says in the pleading.
Greene also counters that the school owes him $96,293 for unpaid salary, deferred compensation and loans he and his wife made to the school. Judge Harris did not rule on those claims.
Under Harris’ order, the court reserves the right to grant additional relief as to other potential claims.
