The battle lines have been drawn in a 26-page lawsuit that pits a former Westview High School teacher and assistant cheerleading coach against the county’s director of schools and the county’s assistant director.
The suit, filed April 28 in Weakley County Circuit Court, stemmed from an alleged incident that occurred at the Martin high school and the actions apparently taken against the teacher as a result of the incident.
According to the civil lawsuit filed jointly by David Byars Jr. and his wife, Elizabeth Byars, the “prayer for relief” includes compensation for punitive, compensatory and consequential damages totaling $1.6 million. The targets named in the suit are Weakley County Director of Schools Randy Frazier and Weakley County Assistant Director of Schools Jeff Kelley in a private capacity. The suit does not name the Weakley County Board of Education or the Weakley County School System.
Complaints listed in the suit against Frazier and Kelley include slander, false light, obstruction of justice, defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress and loss of spousal consortium (affection).
Byars served as a teacher and gymnastics coach for the Westview High School Cheer Squad from August 2007 through Feb. 2, 2011. In his defense as an apparently “exemplary” member of the community, Byars suggests in the lawsuit his reputation in the county prior to Jan. 21, 2011, included the personal character traits consistent with integrity and honesty.
An incident reportedly occurring Jan. 21 during cheerleading practice at Westview High School has resulted in the legal suit.
According to the civil lawsuit, the Westview cheerleading squad had assembled in the Martin high school’s gym for practice. At the time, Byars served as the tumbling coach for the squad while his sister, Hollie Byars, served as an assistant coach and his father, David Byars, served as the head coach of the squad. The suit claims that a verbal argument pertaining to “private family matters” ensued between Byars and his sister. As David Byars attempted to prevent his son from walking away, he allegedly lost his footing and stumbled backwards, according to the document.
A second attempt to prevent Byars, Jr. from leaving the gym resulted in shouting and the pinning of Byars against a railing while his sister reportedly hit him in the back of the head, the suit claims.
The incident was caught on surveillance videotape mounted in the gymnasium.
Reportedly, both Frazier and Kelley viewed the tape of the incident. According to the civil suit, David Byars told Frazier that he had lost his footing and fell during the incident.

The battle didn’t wage long over a lawsuit that pitted a former Weakley County school teacher and coach against two school system administrators.
The suit, filed April 28 in Weakley County Circuit Court, stemmed from an alleged incident that occurred at Westview High School and the actions apparently taken against the teacher as a result.
According to the civil lawsuit filed jointly by David Byars Jr. and his wife, Elizabeth Byars, the “prayer for relief” included compensation for punitive, compensatory and consequential damages totaling $1.6 million.
Named in the suit were Weakley County Director of Schools Randy Frazier and Assistant Director of Schools Jeff Kelley in a private capacity. The suit did not name the Weakley County Board of Education or the Weakley County School System.
Complaints listed in the suit against Frazier and Kelley included slander, false light, obstruction of justice, defamation, intentional infliction of emotional distress and loss of spousal consortium (affection).
According to an order signed and released July 14 by 27th Judicial District Circuit Court Judge William Acree, Frazier and Kelley acted within their rights as administrators for the Weakley County school system and there was no “tort” for a lawsuit. The order for dismissal of the civil suit also stated that Frazier and Kelley could not be sued as individuals.
Byars served as a teacher and gymnastics coach for the Westview High School Cheer Squad from August 2007 through Feb. 2, 2011.
The 26-page lawsuit cited Byars had become a target of ridicule and interest as a result of the alleged incident that took place during a cheerleading practice session on Jan. 21 at the Martin high school that evolved into an apparent family conflict.
The suit claims that a verbal argument pertaining to “private family matters” ensued between Byars and his sister.
As David Byars attempted to prevent his son from walking away, he allegedly lost his footing and stumbled backwards, according to the document.
Byars was represented by Memphis attorney Larry Parrish, the same attorney that filed suit against the Weakley County School Board for clients Carol Hinman and the Joost family for claims of mold exposure at Westview High School three years ago.
An answer to the civil suit was filed in Weakley County Circuit Court June 15, as well as a motion to dismiss the suit against Frazier and Kelley. The pair was represented by Mississippi attorney Jay Atkins.
Byars had requested a jury trial to hear the lawsuit.
“Accepting the language in the complaint as true, the Court can reach no conclusion except that the defendants (Frazier and Kelley) were operating in their official capacity with the Weakley County School System when they spoke with the grandmother and parents of the cheerleaders. Under the foregoing statue, the defendants are immune from the claims for slander, false light, defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress,” Acree’s order reads.
As for the claims against the school system administrators for loss of spousal consortium (affection), if an injured party does not have a cause of action, then his spouse has no claim for consortium, according to the judge’s order.
Byars will serve as a cheerleading coach at Obion County Central High School in Troy for the upcoming school year.
Candra Smith was hired by the Weakley County School System in early spring to replace Byars at Westview High School upon his resignation

Lawsuit was dismissed. Drop this.

Obion Central is very lucky to get him for a coach. These girls at OCCHS have been hungry for years to try and break into the world of competitive cheer. They have worked hard setting the foundation. Having him as a coach will be the boost they need. I predict great success for the squad in the coming years. I hope the community will give him and them your full support. Its not easy. It's a lot of hard work, sacrifice, injuries, fundraising, ect. Ask any of the cheer families in Martin. Best of luck to them all.
