Blain Dillard is a parent of three sons living in Cary, NC, which is served by the Wake County Public School System.
On Saturday, July 27th, 2019, he was served a summons documenting a lawsuit filed on behalf of Mathematics Vision Project, LLC (MVP), a curriculum vendor in Lehi, UT. The case was filed in the Utah Fourth Judicial District Court as Case number 190401221.
Blain’s attorney, Jeffrey Hunt of Parr Brown Gee & Loveless has provided this statement:
“It is alarming that a parent would be sued for defamation for expressing opinions and making truthful statements about his son’s high school math curriculum. The lawsuit appears to be an attempt to silence Mr. Dillard and other critics of MVP, and to chill their First Amendment rights to speak about MVP’s services. We believe the lawsuit has no legal merit and we intend to vigorously defend the right of Mr. Dillard, as well as other parents, to have a voice in the education of their children.”On September 9, 2019, Mr. Hunt filed a response to MVP’s complaint on behalf of Blain. Friends and supporters of Blain have created a website parentrights.net, the purpose of which is to post information about the lawsuit, including court documents publicly available from the court in Utah, in both original and website-friendly formats.
The response documents filed provide significant comments regarding Blain’s defense, and we encourage you to read each and every word of it. In the unlikely event the response documentation does not answer all your questions, please contact Jeffrey Hunt for more information.
