Civil Plaintiff

Judge Approves $2.1M Sexual Abuse Settlement Between LAUSD and Former Student

A judge Monday approved a $2.1 million settlement that Los Angeles Unified reached with a 17-year-old plaintiff who alleges she was sexually abused by her third-grade teacher at a Pacoima elementary school during the 2010-11 school year.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Samantha Jessner’s approval was necessary to finalize the case resolution because the plaintiff is a minor.

The teen alleges she was molested by teacher Paul Chapel while she was a student at Telfair Elementary School. The LAUSD previously reached settlements with other plaintiffs who similarly alleged they were abused by Chapel, including 12 who agreed to a collective $30 million settlement in May 2016.
