Legal Filings from BCS (Prop 39 complaint)

I expect that the legal paperwork is going to ramp up quite a bit over the next month or so.  I will try to make it clear at the top of each post which legal action the post deals with:
Prop 39 Complaint (2012-13)
Legal Fees (2009-10)
LASD Cross Complaint (semi-private school)

Prop 39 Complaint

We received the BCS filings for the lawsuit against LASD.  I remain deeply disappointed that BCS would choose to continue to litigate this matter.  I've reviewed the declarations, and as expected, the LASD interpretation of events is materially different from what is stated by BCS.  I won't go into chapter and verse here- I'll leave that to the lawyers, and let them decide when to deconstruct the nonsense in these filings.  Rest assured that the District will vigorously contest these accusations, and we have a few things we'd like the judge to consider while she's reviewing all of this.  I'm grateful that we'll be getting a full and fair hearing on the facts.  Thanks, again, to our legal team.

To say that this process is merely "disappointing" takes a great deal of restraint.  BCS repeatedly harps on the refrain that they want to be part of the community, that they are only interested in what is best for their kids. I find it hard to reconcile that with the blatant manipulation of facts and the use of children as stage props.  BCS takes no responsibility for what they're doing, and then asks why people don't admire them.  Reading these declarations, and understanding that they are manipulating the situation and doing so in order to close a high performing school.. well, let's just say that I don't wonder why they aren't beloved.

Plase note that we do not have any of the Exhibits that should accompany these documents.  once we have them, I will post them here for everyone to see.
