Loudoun County School Board member Beth Barts has been ordered to appear in Loudoun County Circuit Court on Monday at 9 a.m., according an order signed by Chief Judge Douglas L. Fleming on Sept. 3.
Barts has been ordered to appear to show cause why she should not be removed from office based on the “enumerated charges” brought forth the group of Loudoun County residents known as the Citizens of the Leesburg District.
The group that filed the petition, Citizens of Leesburg, which collected 1,860 signatures, claims that Barts’ neglect of duty, misuse of office, and incompetence in the performance of her duties are among the reasons for their petition.
