Sexual-Harassment Claim Refiled Against L.A. Chief
A school district manager last week filed a new sexual-harassment lawsuit against Superintendent Ramon C. Cortines and the Los Angeles Unified School District.
The suit expands on previous claims made by Scot Graham. The allegations stem largely from incidents that occurred during Mr. Graham's visit to Mr. Cortines' ranch in 2010. An earlier lawsuit had been dismissed in 2013 because lawyers failed to file it in time.
Mr. Graham's new legal team asserts the claims have new standing with the return of Mr. Cortines to the helm of the school system.
The district called the new filing "frivolous."
