LA Unified School District in multimillion-dollar settlement of 58 teacher lewd acts claims

The Los Angeles Unified School District has reached settlements of 58 legal claims stemming from alleged lewd acts by an elementary school teacher.

District officials described the deal Tuesday as a double-digit multimillion-dollar settlement but would not release the actual sum until it is approved by a judge.

The claims arose from an investigation of a teacher at Miramonte Elementary school who is now charged with committing lewd acts in his classroom over five years.

The deal would only settle a portion of the 191 pending claims against the nation's second-largest school district.
