CA: $2M Verdict for Molested Student in Negligence Suit Against School District

On Thursday, a jury in Los Angeles reached a $2M verdict against a school district for failing to properly supervise a teacher who had a sexual relationship with a student in 2013, when she was 15 years old.  The overall award was $5M, but the jury split responsibility 60% for the teacher, who was not a party to the suit, and 40% for the school district.  The teacher had been arrested in 2004 for an alleged act against a minor at another high school.  NBC4 has the story.
