So, rather than play in this rigged game framed by LAUSD with the tacit support of UTLA, where my rights and the rights of thousands of targeted teachers to basic due process of law continue to be ignored, I decided to writ my case to the Los Angeles Superior Court, not based on the facts of my case, but rather based on the notion that the legal process to remove me as a teacher from LAUSD has completely ignored my due process rights and should be dismissed as a matter of law, irrespective of any underlying case based on completely and obviously fabricated hearsay - if anybody bothered to look.
If I am not successful in Superior Court, I will writ my case into the Appellate Court and beyond into the federal court system. While I have no guarantee that I can get a fair hearing based on the uncontroverted facts of my case showing a complete and utter lack of due process, I will continue to fight, if only to recapture my status as an adult, who cannot be institutionally bullied by LAUSD and UTLA. In the final analysis, I have no guarantee that I will receive justice, but I would rather continue to fight until I get a clear and unequivocal message that the game is rigged. Even if that is the case, I will still have my self-respect, base on the notion that I did everything within my power, which is more than most of the people on both sides of this witch hunt presently have have done.
