A couple of days ago I got a copy of the final filing in the Dawe case. I couldn’t figure out how to post it, I am not much of a technogeek. Fortunately the State Worker Blog posted on it today, completely with a link to the filing.
The original award of somewhat north of $12 million was reduced by the judge to $5 million on appeal. CCPOA has posted cash and property as an appeal bond.
CCPOA has asked the 9th circuit to overturn the decision, based on several legitimate legal questions which may or may not prevail.
Even if CCPOA is successful in their appeal the organization is out literally millions of dollars in legal costs.
Clicking here will link to the blog piece, with further links to the briefs.
