BRENTWOOD — School district leaders announced Wednesday that Brentwood Union School District has settled a second child abuse lawsuit with an $8 million payout.
Trustee Heather Partida made the statement following a closed session meeting in which she and fellow board members unanimously approved the settlement.
“We have learned painful, necessary lessons about the culture we must have in place if we are to be worthy of the trust parents place in us,” Superintendent Dana Eaton said after the settlement was announced.
The district’s insurance will pay the families of eight special needs children who were physically and verbally abused by the same teacher at Loma Vista and Krey elementary schools.
Filed in August, the federal lawsuit names the instructor, Dina Holder, as well as former Loma Vista Elementary Principal Lauri James, former Superintendent Merrill Grant, Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, Margaret Kruse, Director of Special Education Margo Olson, and former Director of Special Education Jean Anthony.
The suit claimed that Holder violated the children’s Constitutional rights by using “unjustified and unreasonable force” against them.

International Common Law Court of Justice
Sponsored by the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State
Founded as a lawful Citizens’ Tribunal of Conscience in Brussels, on September 15, 2012 in Brussels
Natural and Customary Law allows for the establishment of popular courts of justice when the existing legal and governmental authorities are subverting the law and justice, or aiding those who do. Common Law arose historically to uphold the liberties of the people against tyranny, whether religious or secular, and accordingly, has universal jurisdiction when convened as a jury court by more than twelve duly sworn men and women.
The International Common Law Court of Justice (ICLCJ) was established as the legal and judicial arm of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and state (ITCCS), with the help of legal experts, judges and survivors of church terror and imperial genocide in more than a dozen countries.
ITCCS the sponsoring body of ICLCJ was formed in May of 2010 at a closed meeting of survivors of church and state terror in Dublin, Ireland. The event was initiated by Nobel Prize Nominee Reverend Kevin Annett of Canada and members of Irish survivors’ groups.
The foundational purpose of the ITCCS is to unite survivors of genocide and child torture across borders, and to mount a broad political, spiritual and legal movement to disestablish the Vatican and other churches and governments responsible for historic and ongoing crimes against children and humanity.
