An ex-porn actor is suing the Palm Beach School District after signs for his tutoring business were removed from Boca Raton schools, according to the Sun Sentinel.

David Mech, 36, who tutors students as the "Happy/Fun Math Tutor," is also known as Dave Pounder, the "Happy/Fun Porn Guy" who owns an adult entertainment business and has starred in a number of adult films, the newspaper said.

School district officials argue the tutoring and porn companies share the same business address, but Mech says the tutoring business is a separate company from Dave Pounder Productions, which stopped producing porn in 2010, the report said.

The Palm Beach School District responded with this statement:

"The District has yet to be served with any lawsuit, but plans to defend the policy in place (7.151;2H), which states that 'Principals shall use their discretion in selecting and approving business partners that are consistent with the educational mission of the school board.' We are concerned because we have been contacted by a number of parents regarding this issue, and the District will stand by what is ultimately in the best interest of the students."

Mech did not immediately respond to phone calls from NBC 6.
