GRETNA, La. (AP) — A clash on the Jefferson Parish School Board has prompted a vote to launch a legal investigation into the behavior of one of its members.

The Times-Picayune reports (http://bit.ly/Q1ML0a ) Michael Delesdernier proposed hiring lawyers to investigate fellow board member Cedric Floyd's comments in a heated debate in October over an effort to seek new providers of dental and vision insurance and other supplementary employee benefits.

During the October discussion, Floyd accused school system Chief Financial Officer Robert Fulton of mismanaging the vendor selection process and producing an unfair result.
