on the Dr. Christian Head case there is this $4+ million development: UCLA Doctor Settles With UC Board of Regents - with this new troubling development:
Last week’s statement by the regents was as far removed from UCLA’s reaction when this reporter broke the Dr. Head story last year as the Earth is from Antares. Some 14 months ago, Phil Hampton, associate director of UCLA Media Relations, wrote the following on The Wave’s website beneath the story of Dr. Head’s plight:
“It is unfortunate that your readers were not afforded the benefit of UCLA’s response to the inflammatory allegations made by Dr. Christian Head. UCLA is committed to and promotes diversity, and the campus takes all appropriate steps to protect employees from harassment and intimidation. State whistleblower laws prohibit retaliation against employees who express concerns about what they consider to be illegal activity. University policies embrace these laws, and the campus is committed to preventing any such retaliation. Allegations of discrimination and retaliation are taken very seriously and investigated thoroughly. While privacy laws prevent us from discussing details, UCLA investigated Dr. Head’s allegations and found that the evidence does not substantiate the claims of unlawful activity.”
Comes now Dr. Joel Sercarz, a 20-year board certified surgeon and 10-year colleague of Dr. Head at UCLA and other medical facilities, who also filed suit against the University of California Board of Regents last year because he was discriminated and retaliated against, mistreated and ultimately fired from his job because, according to the suit, he supported Dr. Head in his fight against his abusers, protested Dr. Head’s mistreatment and backed up Dr. Head’s complaints of discrimination.
Dr. Sercarz wrote letters to UCLA administrators denouncing their treatment of Dr. Head and once the administrators learned Dr. Sercarz was a witness for Dr. Head against UCLA, the administrators terminated him for “time card fraud” — claiming he was stealing time.
Dr. Sercarz, who is the first physician terminated by UCLA from a Los Angeles County hospital, has engaged the legal services of the renown Bohm Law Group in Sacramento. His attorney said Sercarz’ case is in discovery now and is focusing on how UCLA had him terminated for stealing time by working at UCLA? We’ll have to wait and read what Hampton has to say about this on our website.

At Cal... apparently Boalt Dean Christopher Edley sent: this out about the Wilda White case, which received: a response in turn.
White is not just a "UC Berkeley Law employee" - she is also a Cal alum...
Calls to mind Edley also felt compelled to do: this just a while back.
"as the Earth is from Antares"...love that!
