Perhaps Ms. Angell has an alternate explanation for why CVESD was paying her to write these
Did CVESD decide to use its power and prestige as a public agency in this case in which it
was not a party even though it had not agreed to indemnify Stutz law firm?
Kelly Angell Minnehan will be an important witness in the Stutz v. Larkins defamation case.
Chula Vista Elementary School District filed this motion to prevent its lawyers from being
NAMED AS DOES in an OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE complaint.
CVESD was not a defendant in the case, and its motion (below) was full of bizarre falsehoods,
easily discernible by the court, yet the motion was granted.
This egregious action is evidence of Stutz law firm's indemnification by the school
District...most likely done unofficially.
