$2.1 million judgment obtained on behalf of school district for breach of contract and fraud claims
In March of 2015, Bob Baker, in collaboration with R. Jeffrey Neer and David E. Kenney, obtained a $2,171,609 judgment on behalf of the Montebello Unified School District (“MUSD”) in its claims against Fitness Profile, Inc. and Dennis Windscheffel (“Defendants”). This case arose out of the administration of after-school programs at three high schools within MUSD. MUSD claimed that the Defendants failed to provide promised services, siphoned off money for their own personal use and then engaged in fraudulent activity to cover up this misconduct by manipulating records. In the bench trial, the judge agreed with MUSD’s claims and, in addition to the award of damages and punitive damages resulting in the $2,171,609 judgment, also ordered an award of costs and attorneys’ fees in favor of MUSD.
