Galli v. Pittsburg Unified School District

DISCLAIMER: Our firm's past results do not predict or guarantee future success. Each case is unique. Read more

In Brief

A school district employee successfully argued that state officers are not immune from individual liability under 42 USC § 1983 due for “official” acts.

Summary of Filed Complaint

TELG Client Tim Galli discovered that his employer, the Pittsburg (Calif.) Unified School District had engaged in a number of financial and budgetary improprieties. After he reported these problems, he was placed on leave without pay, and forced to take early retirement.

What Happened in Court

A federal judge in the Northern District of California held that state officers are not immune from personal liability under § 1983 solely by virtue of the “official” nature of their acts, and found defendants could be individually liable for Galli’s termination.
