Alma Guzman, the Southside ISD board member, has filed suit against Southside ISD for discimination. She filed the lawsuit in federal court. Her lawsuit was then removed to federal court. I previously wrote about her discrimination claim here. Her lowest settlement offer has been $600,000.
That amount strikes me as quite high, but I do not know the strength of the evidence against the employer. Nor do I know the value of Ms. Guzman’s lost income and benefits. Trial is set for Dec. 3, 2012. See San Antonio Express News report.
