Coach Wins $1.2 Million in Employment Trial

From the wild world of college sports comes a story of retaliation from the Left Coast.  We like these stories because they combine two of our practice areas: employment law and sports law.

Here's the full story.  In short, though, a Los Angeles community college baseball coach complained about academic fraud and misuse of public funds, including financial aid.

The college's stated reason for the firing was an “out-of-protocol check request” and unapproved building of a batting cage.

The jury didn't buy the college's reason and awarded $1.2 million.

The basketball coach is also suing the school for age discrimination.  Sounds like a great place to work.
