Deadlines extended on Acker Jr. lawsuit

A federal judge has agreed to delay filing deadlines on a lawsuit brought against former Alabaster teacher Daniel Acker, Jr. who pleaded guilty in 2012 to sexually abusing girls during his teaching tenure, according to court documents.

The civil lawsuit was filed in 2013 by Jon Goldfarb, Daniel Arciniegas and L. William Smith on behalf of Kristin Hurt and four other unnamed plaintiffs.

Acker, who currently is in prison, taught at Thompson Elementary School, Creek View Elementary School and TIS, and was a school bus driver during his teaching tenure in Alabaster.
