Attorney Matthew B. Wallin, a partner at Wallin & Klarich, recently helped a client win a school expulsion hearing in the Los Angeles Unified School District. The Expulsion Review Board decided not to move forward with the expulsion, allowing our client to remain in the district.
Our client was facing expulsion due to allegations of sexual harassment and sexual battery.
According to California Education Code Section 48900, a student who commits or attempts to commit a sexual assault or battery will face mandatory expulsion proceedings. In these cases, the principal does not have discretion.
How to Win a School Expulsion Hearing in Los Angeles
Due to extensive knowledge of the California Education Code and Los Angeles Unified School District procedures, Attorney Wallin was able to win the school expulsion hearing in Los Angeles. He was able to uncover inadequacies in the school’s investigation of the incident through cross-examination of the school administrator.
“The United States Supreme Court has found that the 14th Amendment’s prohibition on a state’s depriving a person of life, liberty, or property without due process of law, applies to education as well,” Attorney Wallin said. “Young people do not shed their constitutional rights at the schoolhouse door.”
Attorney Wallin, who recently became a partner at Wallin & Klarich, is one of the few attorneys in Southern California who has the knowledge and skill necessary to handle school expulsion hearings. You can find out more about Attorney Wallin here.
