A hearing date has been set for the Midland Valley Prep principal who is suing the Aiken County School Board.
Lillian Thomas filed suit against the board, the superintendent and six employees of her school about a year ago.
She is suing for defamation and emotional distress, among other things.
6 employees of the charter school claimed Thomas spent school money on things like makeup.
Thomas was cleared by a Midland Valley Prep board investigation.
A judge is set to hear the case March 13.
