Barbara S. Chapman and Christopher Druzgalski v. California Faculty
Rothner, Segall & Greenstone by Bernhard Rohrbacher, Attorney, for
California Faculty Association.
Attorney Bernhard Rohrbacher
Bernhard Rohrbacher and Michael Hersh represented
Virginia "Gina" Boyd and Tim O'Neill in the Maura Larkins
case. Their goal was to prove that CTA did not help the
school district violate the law.
Chula Vista Elementary School District filed this motion to
prevent its lawyers from being NAMED AS DOES in an
OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE complaint. Neither CVESD nor
CTA were defendants in the case, so why were they so
anxious for the suit to be dropped?

The Teachers Association of Long Beach claims the district breached the
collective bargaining agreement and is seeking compensation for 29 affected
teachers during the period 2001 to 2005, said the union's attorney, Bernhard
Although the schedule change did not extend the school day, it did make
teachers responsible for additional students, causing the educators to spend
more time outside school grading papers and preparing lessons, Rohrbacher
"The bottom line is the district did something unilaterally to increase the overall
workday of the teachers" without providing additional compensation, he said.
Rohrbacher said the contract states that middle- and high-school teachers
historically have worked six periods daily, one of which is a conference period
that teachers use to plan lessons, grade papers,
Likewise, teachers forced to teach an additional class beyond the conference
period should get more money, Rohrbacher said.
"When (teachers) teach during the conference period, they have to spend
more time at home grading," he said.
Although the school's schedule change occurred before 2001, the union is
prevented by the statute of limitations from seeking damages that occurred
before that year, Rohrbacher.
