Masino's 11-page response rebuffs most of Settles Bridge's charges with the exception of generally-accepted facts, such as his address, occupation and the venue and jurisdiction of the court.
Most notably, Masino denied that he "contacted, induced, coerced, pressured and/or conspired" with Suwanee officials to block the school's relocation.
Masino also claimed that he "is without knowledge or information" about an email sent to the Suwanee mayor and city council on Feb. 27, 2008, that allegedly said residents would "probably go nuts" over the school's relocation. Additionally, Masino said he did not advise city officials to amend the zoning ordinance, which blocked Settles Bridge's sale of the property to Notre Dame.
A message left at Masino's office wasn't immediately returned Friday afternoon.
