Report: Teacher in L.A. molestation case paid to resign

In Martha Cedeno’s first-grade class, pupils told her where to find the gym schedule and explained they were to play volleyball, according to a pool report.

The new hires, which include a retired principal, 81 teachers and dozens of support staff, will cost the cash-strapped district $5.7 million, said district spokesman Thomas Waldman. The new staffers were recently laid off and were on a rehiring list.

The district also faces potentially millions of dollars in legal costs as lawsuits are filed. Three lawsuits were filed on Tuesday, and claim notices have been filed for at least four other lawsuits.

A number of parents have opted to file lawsuits instead of going to sheriff’s detectives because they are illegal immigrants and are afraid they’ll be deported.

Assemblyman Tom Ammiano said he will reintroduce a bill this month that will protect children and domestic violence victims from deportation.
