Re "Top L.A. Unified Attorney Is Fired," June 10: When a school district seemingly as poor as the L.A. Unified School District fires a man and grants him a severance package of more than $342,000 I begin to wonder who gave him this contract and how many others like it are out there. It is criminal that this type of situation exists while programs are being cut and school employees are being told that they will be furloughed to cut expenses. Now the district may use more private firms to do its legal chores, at a greater expense.

A Superior Court jury Friday ordered the Los Angeles Unified School District to pay $425,000 to a former Locke High School teacher who said her 1st Amendment rights were violated after she refused to allow her students to be searched for weapons. Ami Motevalli, 32, who taught art under a one-year contract at the South-Central Los Angeles campus, charged that she was not rehired because she spoke out against random searches of students using hand-held metal detectors.

The Los Angeles Board of Education agreed Tuesday to restore the money it had slashed from the inspector general's budget, saying the cuts would compromise investigations into waste and corruption. Don Mullinax, the district's inspector general, told the board that budget cuts this year have left his office without adequate resources to do the job of probing questionable activity and auditing district departments. The board granted Mullinax's request to keep his budget at $6.

The Internal Revenue Service has made a ruling that could cost the Los Angeles Unified School District millions of dollars a year by disallowing the tax-exempt status of bonds sold to build the troubled Belmont Learning Complex.
