Former Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill is suing a candidate for the US Congress for defamation.

State Representative Tim Stubson is running for the US House seat being vacated by Representative Cynthia Lummis.

Hill alleges that she was defamed on his campaign website in an apparently reprinted interview with a journalist.

Stubson was asked about the vote to remove Hill from office, and Stubson defended the removal saying that there were lots of illegal acts not made public.

The suit has been filed in the Natrona County District Court.
