Contra Costa Times Publishes Article About Whistleblower Suit Against Pittsburg School District
In an article titled, “Whistle-blower suit filed against Pittsburg school district,” Contra Costa Times reports about Tim Galli’s whistleblower retaliation lawsuit against the Pittsburg school district. Tim Galli, a 35-year educator and former Pittsburg High principal, suffered retaliation when he raised concerns about the school district’s questionable budgetary practices, and undisclosed financial conflict of interest between the superintendent and a school board member. According to the suit, the district “engaged in a cover-up effort to hide their retaliation by dredging up an incident that was months old, undergoing an unconstitutional investigation and ultimately voting to terminate Galli without just cause and without following the most basic due process requirements.” The Employment Law Group® law firm is representing Mr. Galli in his retaliation action under the California Whistleblower Protection Act.
