The fallout from a former Indianapolis Public Schools counselor, accused of having sex with students continues on this Tuesday. WRTV-TV reports that two IPS school officials have resigned in connection to the proper legal reporting of the alleged child seduction activities of Shana Taylor.  Both, Lela Hester and Shalon Dabney have resigned, effective June 30. Hester served in the human resources department as Human Resource Services Operations Officer and Employee Relations Coordinator, respectively. Taylor is heading to court immediately after the Independence Day holiday. WTHR-TV reports Shana Taylor’s trial will begin on Tuesday, July 5. This sex scandal has led to a firestorm of criticism for the district and the alternative school where she worked regarding the district waiting six days to report the improper activity to state officials and who knew about the incidents and didn’t follow the procedure to report by law. IPS board members worked late into the night attempting to come to agreement on whether another employee, Deb Leser, the director of student services at Positive Support Academy should be fired for not alerting police or the state when she learned of Taylor’s alleged activities.

Legendary former University of Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt has died this morning at the age of 64. Summitt had been suffering from Alzheimer’s disease since 2011. During her Hall of Fame career, Summitt won 1,098 games and eight national championships with the Lady Volunteers. Summitt achieved the status of “the winningest coach in college basketball history.” She groomed players who became legendary like our own Indiana Fever superstar Tamika Catchings, who referred to Summitt on her own Facebook page, as “the strongest woman I know.”

The judge who will decide who gets how much of Prince’s estate says the case is in “uncharted waters.” Nearly two-dozen attorneys, representing potential heirs, showed up to have a say at a hearing Monday on the late artist’s estate. Prince died without a known will and the judge admitted in court that he and the attorneys are struggling to understand how Minnesota’s laws might affect who gets some of the estimated $100-to-$300 million the music legend left behind.
