DES MOINES (AP) — The former Des Moines schools superintendent is suing the district over its handling of explicit emails that led to her resignation.

Des Moines station KCCI-TV reports Nancy Sebring filed a lawsuit Thursday that claims the emails detailing her affair with a lover should not have been released to the public because they were part of a personnel matter when district officials uncovered them.

Sebring used school district computers to send the correspondence. She resigned in May 2012 from her post then resigned from her job to lead Omaha schools.

The lawsuit names three district officials, including the former school board president. It claims they acted with malicious intent to have the emails released to the public.

The station reports officials named in the lawsuit have declined to comment.
