ROUND ROCK, Texas — Two men who were arrested last year for disrupting a Round Rock ISD board meeting have now filed a lawsuit against the district, superintendent, trustees, and police officers.
The suit claims the school district conspired to deprive Dustin Clark and Jeremy Story of their constitutional rights when they tried to bring up the alleged incidents involving superintendent’s Dr. Hafedh Azaiez and object to a tax rate, during a closed meeting that they say violated the Texas Open Meetings Act.
The lawsuit is referring to a meeting back in September of 2021 involving masking in schools. Round Rock Police had to be called because of disruptions, and Clark and Story were later arrested by the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office.

The district has not been served with the civil suit and has not had the opportunity to review it yet and so has no comment at this time.
