The school official with an axe to grind
Our client was found not responsible at a hearing at a public school. The complaining witness appealed. On appeal, a school official reversed the finding because he had an axe to grind with our client. We sued in federal court and, after months of litigation, the judge granted summary judgment in our favor – finding that there was no need for a trial because the evidence was so strong that our client’s rights had been violated. Even better, after we won, the judge ruled that the school had to pay the vast majority of our attorneys’ fees.
