You would not believe, and you likely never will find out

how much money politicians and public servants like APS School Board Member Marty Esquivel, Supt Winston Brooks and the rest of the leadership of the APS spend on cost is no object legal defenses in their efforts to escape the consequences of breaking the law.  You have no idea how many operational dollars, dollars that could and should be spent in classrooms instead, are spent on settlements in order that the names of the guilty can be scrupulously scrubbed out.

Esquivel admitted to me long ago, that he knew that APS lawyers have a long history of running up huge bills in litigation and then settling when every last dime has been squeezed out or their time has come in court.

I can tell you that the number is so large that the district (taxpayers) have to pay more for their insurance than comparable districts with less litigious leadership.

You have no idea how much they spend and how.

You will likely never find out how much they spend and how,
because the Journal and other "news outlets"
won't ask them the question.

Or, if they have asked,
they won't tell us what they said.

The one really, no better than the other.
