District, Norgaard Reach Tentative Settlement Deal

Attorneys for the San Marino Unified School District and Board Member Chris Norgaard have reached a tentative settlement of Norgaard’s lawsuit against the district, The Tribune has learned.

Representatives from both sides met on Tuesday before a mediator at the order of District Court Judge Fernando M. Olguin.
Norgaard filed suit against the district in federal court for civil rights violations, including defamation of character, under the First and 14th Amendments of the Constitution. Norgaard was seeking unspecified compensatory, special and punitive damages as well as attorney fees. The longtime School Board member was also seeking a permanent injunction against the School District for what he claimed was the violation of his constitutional rights as a member of the SMUSD Board of Education.

“The parties have tentatively reached an agreement,” a joint statement said. “We are working to finalize it. No further comment will be made at this time.
