Christensen v. Juab School District 2017 UT 47 (Aug. 11, 2017)

Aug 11, 2017

This case involved a claim arising under the Reimbursement Act, which allows public employees to recover fees and costs for criminal charges arising out of or in connection with acts under color of the employee’s authority.  The supreme court held a teacher was entitled to reimbursement of fees and costs incurred in successfully defending charges of aggravated sexual abuse, because the criminal information alleged that the former employee committed the acts while acting in a position of special trust as a teacher.
