For those of you who don't know, a lawsuit was filed against Midlothian ISD in January 2011 by a former school bus driver. The school bus driver approached Dr. Edd Bigbee in good faith concerning the morale and professionalism of a new employee. Instead of mediating or resolving the issue, Dr. Bigbee emailed Transportation Coordinator Deanna Cannon and told her to start a file on the bus driver. Lesss than 2 months later, the African-American bus driver was fired. And just this summer, the bus driver sent his court case to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, Louisiana; just one step away from reaching the Supreme Court in Washington DC. Dr. Bigbee resigned from Midlothian ISD less than 30 days after the bus driver transferred his case. Gee, I wonder what Dr. Bigbee can be running from. He needs to take Deanna Cannon and Robin Bullock with him!!!

A far as I am concerned, that Dr. Bigbee guy is a bump on a pigs butt and no one can hardly get a reaction from him. I did not know anything about a lawsuit against MISD but I did hear that the lady over the school bus transportation was almost fired a few years back because she wrongly fired 2 other bus drivers for no apparent reason. However I am hearing over and over that the school bus department is having problems. Why wont the school board wake up and do something about it??? And that Robin Bullock gal only kept her job because her good-looking husband was the AD at the time those 2 poor bus drivers were fired. Popularity and good looks come before children and rules unfortunately in these small Texas towns.

Well, you might have some idea, I grew up in Midlothian, still live, there, my kids went to High School there. Midlothian is SO political and the good 'ol boy system is FIRMLY in place. If you don't have money, your kids won't play sports. My son was on a select ball team, traveled all over America to play tournaments and couldn't make the High School team because I wasn't apart of the SOCIAL ELITE and didn't kiss the right ass. It's pitiful, I don't know why I have stayed here all of these years.

Oh I'm sure I have some idea lol. My youngest boy graduated in 2005 and I still attended a few board meetings after that. I always felt like I was in a court room and not a public school. It really is all about the popularity, the fame, and the money; spare me the crap about how it's for the kids. We all know thats not true. But I did hear a school bus mechanic has also filed a lawsuit or was getting ready to file a lawsuit. I hope these 2 individuals milk them dry. I am also very well aware of some of the love affairs going on in the transportation building and some of the schools. Rumor has it that the lady who runs the school bus department had an affair with the former superintendent to get the job, but of course most affairs cannot be proven; and I know for a fact she's not he only employee sleeping around.

Yes, very interesting. I did go online and read the court docs concerning the african-american bus driver and that Dr. Bigbee guy, although it charged me $.08 a page to view everything. I cannot be believe we were paying this old fart out of our tax dollars to treat our bus drivers this way. Thank GOD he is gone. I bet you the bus driver will prevail; he has the proof that his termination was planned. Why are these small Texas towns so political and racist? Can we not realize that the 40's and 50's are gone and wake up to 2012? I mean, if you don't like minority raced people, go live in Ireland or Scotland, and you won't have to worry about that. I am White and was never raised to mistreat blacks or mexicans/hisp. Why can't bus drivers just be left alone and take the kiddos to school safely and back so they can get their education? I too have sat in on some board meetings and didn't see anyone worth a poop. I have learned over the years in Midlothian that you do have to have money, be white, or hand around the right ass kissers. And poorly, some whites are mistreated. I did try to see if the school bus mechanic had a lawsuit, but I couldn't find anything online, YET

to MHCampbell: what is the case number for the bus driver who filed the lawsuit? I sure would like to read that for myself. and what exactly are they charging online and why?

Midlothian, TX

#7 Nov 3, 2012
ok Jaz there are 2 different case numbers because he appealed his first case. The first case#: 3-11-cv-0123-k-bd from district court in Dallas, TX; and the second one is: 12-10527 where the case is now in 5th Circuit Court New Orleans, LA. You need to apply for a PACER account which stands for Public Access to Court Electronic Records. You can lookup any former or current court case in the country. You must have a credit or debit card. They will charge you .08cents a page to print/view. Be careful about reviewing or reprinting the same page over and over as they will keep charging you .08 cents for each page. they will bill you quarterly. the name of the case is Richard D. Young vs. Midlothian I.S.D. I am not sure why they charge but I guess that is for every case.

Oh my dear sweet Jesus. I know Richard. He was my kids bus driver a couple of years ago on Bus 7. My kids loved him. I cannot believe that poor guy has to go through all this mess. My kids said that the only bad thing about him was that he was late all the time but other than that he was AWESOME!!!!!!! I didn't even know he was african/american. Not that it even matters.

About the sleeping around I heard that the woman who runs the school bus barn, her sister works in the office at Frank Seale Middle school and she has had her share of affairs and she "supposedly" slept with a former transportation supervisor to get a short bus route. a relative of mine use to drive a school bus for MISD and went to administration and told them EVERYTHING about all the crap going on in the transportation department. I'm not sure if anything ever came about it. But the bus driver that was fired said that he will take his case all the way to the supreme court. And if he doesn't get his job back he will run for school board. He said one way or another he will be a part of the school district and that they cannot run him out of this town. He has my vote. It'll be his turn to fire people:)

Bingo Daddy,

You say the crap will hit the fan when word gets out, I would wager good money that it won't, it will get swept up under the rug, covered for, lied for and lied about for years to come. Nothing will be said or done to anyone in "power". That's just the way it is in Midlothian. BTW, case in point, have you seen and local media, ie, Midlothian, Waxahachie, Today newspapers report any of this???

to: wont happen

Not yet, I haven't seen any of this in the newspaper. But I did look up the case on the Electronic Court Record thanks to MHCampbell above. There was a lot to read.

to: and

Sam Allsbrook retired in January from MISD as school bus driver. However, he got mad and resigned from his position in 2000 as school bus transportation supervisor when administration told him he was going to be replaced by someone at the end of that school year. the real reason was is that many of the teachers were complaining on Sam on the way he was directing field trips. After he got mad and quit, he came back as a special ed. school bus driver. The teachers at the high school were complaining on his driving and arrival/departure procedures. Sam was then reassigned to drive a big bus and now has MANY written reprimands in his file. Those include letting a little girl sit in his lap on the school bus, running a stop sign while driving a bus which resulted in being pulled over by the police on Sudith Ln., and many many many more written discipline reports. and to think this man use to run the department. I can't really say if he is the one who ruined the department to begin with or if it is the stupid broad running it now:(

This all really bothers me. Midlothian ISD really needs to be ran by the Dallas County Schools Transportation or another private bus company like Durham or Stock. Is there really anyone in charge of the bus department? By reading all of this, it seems like there's a bunch of school bus driver's running around the bus barn like chicken's with their heads cut off with a mother hen nowhere to be found. I thought this new superintendent STEWART was really going to make some good changes? I don't think laying off bus driver's and avoiding lawsuits is helping our children get to and from school without all the politics and retaliation.

I am sickened by all the feces in Midlothian. It is time for the district to get an enema. At least they got rid of Edd Bigbee. He was a racist hemorrhoid on a frog's butt. The school bus department really went to crap when randy Bullock left. that bucked-tooth bimbo running it now is as dumb as a brussel sprout. She is definitely there for the paycheck.

to: wont happen. Everyone has a breaking point and eventually the mess will be aired all over. It will hit MISD when they least expect it. GOD punishes ALL who do wrong; even the ones in the small red-neck towns.

and that lawsuit cost Robin Bullock her job; I don't know if that's good or bad, but she is no longer working for MISD. she signed off on a fired school bus driver's termination notice and it back fired because she got caught in a scandal by planning his termination in advance with Dr. Edd Bigbee and Deanna Cannon. Bigbee was smart and quit before he got fired. He knew what was going to happen; he had been superintendent before in another district so he is aware with different scenarios involving lawsuits within the school district. Robin is so stupid, she had to learn the hard way; that poor inexperienced skinny thang. And Deanna Cannon will be next. Little does she know, she is training her own replacement.

I would like to place money on the table that the current bimbo over MISD school bus transportation feared for her job that Young could easily replace her. She saw it coming so she got rid of him before the new superintendent phased into the district a couple of months later. He was a senior in college at the time he was fired and already had 11 years of experience driving a school bus, and operated an alternative school in Fort Worth. He was above her in so many ways. I was told he now is working on a Master's degree. There are quite a few Midlothian school bus drivers with college that can easily take her job. No offense to anyone reading this, but why have a dumb bimbo with only a high school diploma that lives in a trailer be in charge of a bunch of educated retired people with college degrees? What is wrong with that picture? Hello

Midlothian is a racist town for sure. Bunch of idiots who think they own the whole town. Heard they did not want to play the selena movie in the movies in the park because they were afraid a bunch of hispanics would show up. They dont seem to have a problem collecting every body's taxes. Midlothian - it is time to get out of the time warp and propel yourselves into the 21st century - a more evolved time frame.
