The Fort Worth School District will be appealing the verdict of the Joe Palazzolo trial.

In March, the former Arlington Heights assistant principal turned whistleblower was awarded $2.4 million in his wrongful termination suit against the district. Palazzolo reported various wrongdoings at Heights, including attendance fraud, mistreatment of minority students, and lewd behavior by staff.

  1. Hellz yea the resignation is about JP’s lawsuit but they want you to believe its not. Funny that they never publicized the JP and the Heights fiasco for 4 years and now Walter’s resignation makes all the media circuit? its all lies upon lies just like them wanting to appeal the award decision. They’re stalling again only because they can. The evidence that Brandt says they supposedly have is all bullshit just to push buttons. The district lawyers have about as much evidence as Perry has a chance to become President. The truth will come out and the ISD roaches will scurry. Don’t let them bully you, JP. let them appeal. Zero plus zero is still zero.

  2. what a crock of crap! The district is appealing a lawsuit that they have lost at every turn in the last 4 years? This is a blatant misuse of district funds! What new evidence could they possibly have that would change things? What fools and what a waste of our taxpayer money. Everything I have read and researched about this case is that there a many more people that will be subpoenaed and more crucial documents will be entered as evidence against the district. You all do realize that the second time he wins the price is going up right? You can’t say that people did’n’t try to tell you to leave well enough alone and just take your lumps. this is where the rubber is going to meet the road.
