    Contra Costa Times: Lawsuit: Lafayette School District knew of teacher fondling students before 2010 arrest (Oct 17 2012)

    Lafayette School District employees received complaints of a popular Stanley Middle School teacher fondling female students before the teacher's 2010 arrest for sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl, according to a civil suit filed in Contra Costa Superior Court. The school district, Superintendent Fred Brill, Stanley Principal David Schrag and former teacher Michael Merrick are being sued by the girl who Merrick was found guilty of sexually abusing in his classroom over a four-month period. The lawsuit, filed in March, asks for money for past and future medical expenses, a punitive award and general damages.
