District, Cardenas, and Cupchoy Lose to Smith & Pell

Former Superintendents Susanna Contreras Smith was awarded $2.7 million and Cleeve Pell was awarded $567,665 in a trial alleging they were fired in 2016 for exposing political corruption at the district.

The Los Angeles Superior Court jury also found Board Members Ben Cardenas and Lani Cupchoy acted with malice, oppression, or fraud against Smith and Pell. A second phase of the trial begins today, Monday, to determine the award of punitive damages.
