Eaglesmith, a teacher at the Plumas County Community School and former Quincy High School basketball coach, has filed suit in federal court against Plumas Unified School District (PUSD) and Plumas County Office of Education (PCOE) and a number of administrators alleging he was discriminated against, harassed and retaliated against because of his race, national origin and exercise of First Amendment and other protected rights.
Plumas County Superior Court has thrown out Plumas County’s lawsuit against former District Attorney Jeff Cunan.
Cunan had filed a demurrer with the court. A demurrer challenges the legal adequacy of a suit. A judge can deny the demurrer, in which instance the case proceeds. The demurrer can be granted with a leave to amend; in other words, the party making the claim gets a do-over. Or, the judge can grant the demurrer without leave to amend.
