OLD TAPPAN – A former board of education member who wrote on Facebook that some parents who oppose random drug testing “smoke pot with their kids” is suing a married couple for allegedly smearing her name, according to a lawsuit.

Kathleen Quinn Fable, who served for three years on the Northern Valley Regional Board of Education in Old Tappan claims in court papers that Dennis Doros and Amy Heller of Harrington Park made statements that injured her reputation and adversely affected her advertising business.

The issue stems from an Aug. 5, 2013 Facebook post Fable made about parents who oppose suspicion-based, random drug testing in Bergen County schools.

“Should we be acting on the demands of the parents who smoke pot with their kids?” Fable wrote in the post, which appeared in a closed Facebook group for Old Tappan moms.
