News 4 Interview: Local NAACP director discusses suit against Yerington, school district


An attorney representing a Lyon County family announced Thursday that a lawsuit had been filed against the Lyon County School District and city of Yerington.

The school district has said that its staff appropriately responded to and investigated every incident that was reported.

Lonnie Feemster, director of the Reno-Sparks NAACP, joined News 4 to discuss the lawsuit and how the family has been handling the situation.
