Floyd Irons sues O'Brien for defamation
St. Louis, MO – Former Vashon High School basketball coach Floyd Irons is suing the president of the St. Louis school board, claiming defamation of character.
Irons and supporter Demetrious Johnson filed the suit against Veronica O'Brien this week. The men accuse O'Brien of lying when she said the two men had threatened O'Brien and her family. Irons says those comments have damaged his reputation.
O'Brien has declined comment on the suit.
