Investigation at West Covina Unified Clears Board Members

An investigator iStock_000048253036_Mediumhas concluded that a former West Covina Unified superintendent’s claims of discrimination, retaliation and sexual harassment are “without merit,” district officials said this week.

Liliam Leis-Castillo, who was hired as West Covina Unified superintendent in 2006, filed suit against the district and board members Mike Spence and Steve Cox in August, following her termination by a board vote in May.

Bodyguard talking into earpiece

LOS ANGELES – Britney Spears’ ex-bodyguard is suing the pop star for sexual harassment and emotional distress, claiming she subjected him to naked romps and verbal abuse.

The lawsuit, first reported by TMZ.com, comes several months after Fernando Flores quit working for the superstar.

It alleges that during an undated trip to see the movie “Alice in Wonderland,” Spears swore at Flores and berated him in public when he encountered a delay fetching her drink.
