Coach lawsuit dismissed

A federal judge has dismissed a suit filed last summer by Nik Goertzen in connection with his 2012 removal as Sisters High School girls soccer coach.The suit named former Sisters Schools Superintendent Jim Golden, current Sisters High School Principal Joe Hosang and former athletic director Gary Hedin in a complaint alleging wrongful discharge; reverse discrimination; and negligence.

The court filed its dismissal on November 25.

In March, Goertzen filed a federal lawsuit against a judge involved in a series of legal actions against several parents whom Goertzen believes improperly influenced Sisters High School Principal Joe Hosang’s decision to end Goertzen’s tenure as a soccer coach.

That suit was dismissed in July.
