Scott-George case not over yet

Last week, I wrote about a judge’s ruling in favor of Katrina Scott-George, a senior manager who took the Oakland school district to court in a wrongful termination lawsuit.

But Scott-George wrote me last night to report the district has since appealed the decision. The paperwork has yet to be posted on the DomainWeb site, but I’d imagine it would be there soon.

I’m curious to know how much legal cases such as this can cost a school district, so I’ve asked for the current tab, as well as an estimate for the additional expenses of the appeal. I’ll keep you posted.

    Is there any resolution to this case?
