The attorneys funded by Silicon Valley multi-millionaire David Welch told a Superior Court judge in Los Angeles they are going to complete their case in the Vergara v. state of California lawsuit earlier than expected and end testimony around Feb. 20.
The state and educators are set to begin presenting evidence and calling witnesses this week who will make it clear this case is without merit. Welch and other corporate reformers are seeking to strip educators of professional and due process rights—rights that have been protecting the learning and working environments for more than 80 years. Educators, parents and students will join attorneys in a news conference in Los Angeles Thursday to kick off the defense. Follow along as this case proceeds.
