Ronald W. Sahli, Esq. v. Woodbine Board of Education

1-30-08 (A-92-06)

N.J.S.A. 18A:16-6, which provides for indemnification in defense
of a civil action for “any person holding any office, position
or employment” with a board of education, does not mandate that
the Board of Education indemnify its attorney for actions taken
in his capacity as Board solicitor but does not entitle him to
indemnification for his conduct as secretary pro tem to the
Board. Similarly, the insurance policy at issue in this case
provides coverage to the attorney volunteering to act as
secretary, but does not provide coverage for the Board
solicitor.
