Former Business Manager Files Small Claims Suit
May 14, 2008 - Amanda Zurwell, the former Charles A. Beard Memorial School Corporation business manager facing criminal charges for forgeries and thefts allegedly committed during her brief employment at CAB, has filed a small claims lawsuit against the school corporation.
In a notice filed April 24 in Henry Superior Court 2, Zurwell claims CAB owes her $1,587.03 for "contract salary underpayment, unpaid cell phone stipend, and taxes erroneously held," and she is seeking $86 in court costs. A trial is scheduled for 11:15 a.m. on Thursday, May 29.
CAB's current business manager, David Bundy, told The Banner on Tuesday that Zurwell's small claims lawsuit against CAB came as a surprise. He said the school corporation and its attorney are looking into Zurwell's claims.
Zurwell, who worked at CAB from September 2006 through the middle of January 2007, also has an August 19 trial date in Henry Superior Court 1 for criminal charges stemming from her employment with the school corporation. She is alleged to have forged two CAB checks payable to herself - one for $2,297.19 that was cashed, and one for $2,651.50 that was voided before being cashed - and with overpaying herself about $2,300 after taking over the school corporation's payroll duties.
The two forgery charges are Class C felonies that each carry a maximum of eight years in prison and $10,000 fines. The four theft charges are Class D felonies that could each bring a maximum sentence of three years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Zurwell pleaded guilty to one count of theft in a Brown County Court on April 28 with respect to a $3,132 check stolen in July 2006 from her employer at the time, Brown County School Corporation. A sentencing hearing in that case is set for June 23.
