CASTRO GETS ANOTHER CONTINUANCE FOR TWO WEEKS, AND COWEN FORCES CLOSED SESSION ON TRUSTEE RULES

Castro has retained Star Jones to represent him in the grievance.  In an email read into the record she asked for at least a two week continuance because she had yet to read the grievance or had an opportunity to meet with Castro.  She also seems to say she wants to settle this outside the grievance process.  It is time someone step forward and advocate for the parent because BISD certainly will not.  Baltazar Salazar, counsel for BISD, made clear more continuances could be granted if asked.

TRUSTEE OPERATING MANUAL

It seemed like they were going to do this in open session since it is not protected by Executive Session.  I was typing away on a federal brief and was not paying close attention.  I thought they agreed to do it in open session over Phil Cowen's objections.  The mismanagement of the meeting is surreal.  Castro was allowed to vote on his own continuance.  Yes my friends idiots are running this  Board of Trustees.

So now they are in Executive Session.  People will leave or if at home change channels and what ever happens will get little coverage.  I do not expect to cover it.

ALSO WHO IS PAYING THE LAWYER?

First you note Castro is not going with Angela Nix.  For me Baltazar Salazar was confusing on this but he seemed to suggest Castro asked that BISD insurance cover his legal fees for Star Jones.  Salazar was clear in his legal opinion BISD insurance does not cover the grievance or the removal lawsuit.  But there is an issue with how the lawsuit was filed.  When you sue someone in their representative capacity it is not the same as suing them individually.  This could create a problem for the insurance company. 

If this needs to get fixed Saenz needs to get on top of it now. I raised this issue since day one.

I cannot post your comment as written. But I totally agree with you. You might type her name in the top left hand corner for search and you will learn things which will make you sick. There was a time she was part of Castro's attacks concerning the corruption at BISD, but not he needs her so all if forgiven.

People are actively working on who is paying her.
