LA County Board Considers $1.1 Million Settlement

March 18, 2009

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors will consider a proposed $1.1 million settlement of a lawsuit alleging corruption among former senior county employees.

The proposal was approved by a county claims board, sending the measure to supervisors for final consideration.

The lawsuit filed in February 2007 alleges former county Registrar Conny McCormack discriminated against elderly and nonwhite employees. It also alleges McCormack tried to persuade a worker to boost test scores for a friend’s promotion and to participate in an attempt to defraud an insurance company on behalf of another friend.

The lawsuit was filed by Alvarez Lecesne, his wife Desnee, and their co-worker, Kristen Heffron, who all formerly worked for McCormack’s office.
