CASSOPOLIS — Do employers have the right to look at an employee’s private Facebook page?
That's the center of a legal battle in a Cass County school district WSBT first told you about in March.
On Wednesday the school superintendent spoke with WSBT about it for the first time.
This has been a yearlong war of words.
In April 2011, Kimberly Hester posted a picture on Facebook a parent found inappropriate. After it was reported to the school district, the teacher's aide said she was suspended after refusing to give administrators access to her Facebook account.
You could feel the tension inside the Lewis Cass Intermediate School District's board meeting Wednesday. They didn't address the controversy surrounding Hester, but after the meeting Superintendent Robert Colby answered WSBT's questions.
He maintained the district did nothing wrong.
"Kimberly Hester was not asked for her Facebook password. Never was," Colby told us.
Hester says the principal at the school did ask for access to her profile.
