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.
