In a significant development, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge has approved a multi-million-dollar settlement won by The Cifarelli Law Firm on behalf of a former Rowland Elementary School student who was sexually abused by former teacher Jose Martinez at Rowland. The settlement stems from allegations of negligence and abuse within the district, highlighting the need for stringent protective measures for students.

Case Overview: The lawsuit against Rowland Unified School District involved allegations that the school district was negligent in allowing Martinez to repeatedly sexually abuse its students on campus. After extensive litigation leading to the start of trial, The Cifarelli Law Firm was able to win the multi-million-dollar settlement during the start of trial, without the student-victim having to testify in Court.
