Los Angeles Unified School District Supt. Ramon C. Cortines said Tuesday that he was taking "appropriate personnel action" against the principal and athletic director of Birmingham High School for allowing comedian Sacha Baron Cohen to use the school's football team in a photo shoot.

Everything kind of worked out.
