School principal can’t be sued for fire extinguisher horseplay (access required)

Usually when someone at a middle school gets in trouble for messing around with a fire extinguisher, you expect it to be one of the students. But a secretary at a middle school in Lenoir will not be able to sue the principal of her school for injuries she suffered when the principal was “joking and horse playing around” with a fire extinguisher that subsequently went off. She claims that the discharge aggravated her rare medical condition, but the North Carolina Supreme Court has held that she will have to file her claim through workers’ comp because she couldn’t prove the principal’s behavior was “willful, wanton and reckless.”
