The fat lady sung
Game, set, match
The Giants win the penant! The Giants win the Penant!
These phrases are hints that conflict or game has reached a conclusion.
Would the school board please review them in case they are having trouble comprehending what happened?
The board has spent 3 million dollars in legal fees. They will also have to pay Signitureat least 3 million dollars to to reimburse them for their legal fees.Two diffierent judges have ruled in favor of of Signiture properties. Yet the board is considering another appeal.
Enough already! Stop wasting our money!

This situation has been handled so poorly by the District. It all boils down to being able to read contracts. How can we all not be outraged by the waste of millions of our dollars? That money could have gone so far in our kids' schools. There certainly has been poor legal advice given to the district...either that or we have some very stubborn people running our school district who think they are somehow above the laws governing contracts. This should never have happened and we should all be very unhappy about it (and perhaps find some different people to run the district).

The superintendent defends the attorney, Harold Freiman, that represented PUSD in the contract. PUSD has continued to use him and their law firm, against parents, paying them more. No one has lost their job over this disaster. I would like a public accountability and a commitment that the attorneys will never do business in PUSD again.
Time to end the good old boys club.
