In April 2009, Partners John Golper and Eric Schwettmann received a defense verdict in Bujko v. Los Angeles Unified School District, etc. (Los Angeles Superior Court Case No. EC 044 839). The plaintiff claimed he was subjected to whistleblower retaliation under the California Reporting of Improper Governmental Activities Act (California Education Code § 44110 et. seq) after he reported that a female school Vice Principal walked through the boy’s locker room while the football team was allegedly getting dressed. After an 11 day trial, the jury deliberated for three days and found that the plaintiff’s report was not made honestly and in good faith and therefore was not a protected disclosure under the law. The jury returned a verdict in favor of the Los Angeles Unified School District, the school Principal, and the school Vice Principal.
