Plano schools reach undisclosed settlement with custodian over employment lawsuit

PLANO - The school district has reached a settlement with a middle school custodian who complained last year about nooses he found in management offices including one around the neck of a toy monkey.

Robert Johnson filed a federal lawsuit against the school district in May saying district officials responded inadequately to his complaints. Today his attorney, Paula Johnson Kelly, confirmed that Johnson had reached a settlement in the case, but declined to discuss the details, said Weinberg Law Firm, Plano Employment Lawyer.

Deciding Donte' Stallworth's LA DUI penalty

Stallworth may have gotten special treatment from the Florida judge because of his stature, and a bank account that allowed him to compensate the victim's family. But Vick appears to have defenders simply because he was a superstar quarterback, while Stallworth was, at best, a second-string wide receiver. If we're talking about double standards, let's keep that one in mind, too, said Michael Bialys, LA DUI defense lawyer.

Bunnatine "Bunny" Greenhouse, a whistleblower lawyer Los Angeles, alleged the Halliburton contracting firm illegally obtained billions in government contracts related to its operations in Iraq during the Iraq War. Greenhouse told members of Congress the Halliburton contracts were "the most blatant and improper contract abuse I have witnessed during the course of my professional career." She was later demoted and had her security clearance revoked. Greenhouse refused to resign and is now focused on a stronger federal protection for whistleblowers.

"The majority of the interest has been voiced by real-estate-related entities," said Michael Goldsmith, managing director and commercial real estate head for BBK, a business consulting firm. "I heard Lubert Adler was looking at it, and they're very sophisticated real estate investors." At least one Chicago-area banker, who asked not to be identified, believes the more-likely scenario will have the FDIC arranging for a traditional bank to buy Corus' deposits and branches, and non-banks to acquire the assets, including loans and foreclosed properties.

"They're enormous loans and very complicated, and I don't think any bank wants to take them on even with FDIC guarantees," the Chicago small business lawyer said.
