Plaintiffs' attorney John Manly, at podium, talks to reporters outside Los Angeles Superior Court Friday, Nov. 21, 2014  following the settlement of litigation involving an elementary school teacher convicted of lewd conduct against his students. The Los Angeles Unified School District will pay $139 million to end all remaining litigation in the deal involving 81 students, ending a legal saga that began when Miramonte Elementary School teacher Mark Berndt was arrested in 2012 and accused of blindfolding students and feeding them his semen on cookies. Plaintiff’s lawyers had planned to present evidence suggesting the school district was aware of sexual misconduct by Berndt three decades ago but failed to act until a photo processor at a pharmacy contacted police about film Berndt dropped off that showed pictures of blindfolded children and being fed some substance.
