SANFORD, N.C. — A lawsuit alleging former Lee County School Superintendent James McCormick had a two-year affair with a married woman has been dismissed.

The reason for the dismissal was unclear.

Sherrill Normann Jr. had been seeking monetary damages in the alienation-of-affection suit. He alleged that McCormick, who resigned last June amid rumors of "immoral conduct," had an affair with Margaret Dossenbach Normann for at least two years.

Margaret Normann is a Lee County teacher, according to the suit.

Sherrill Normann said in the suit he was humiliated by the affair, which "irretrievably damaged and destroyed" his marriage.
