In a significant victory potentially applicable to many other California community college faculty members, Attorneys Dennis Grady and Kenneth Baisch of the Grady and Associates Law Firm have won reinstatement of a wrongfully discharged Community College professor. Sam Farahani, a tenured professor of international relations and public policy, was fired by San Diego Community College District in violation of his due process rights under the California Education Code. After he was fired, Grady and Associates filed suit (a Writ of Mandate) in San Diego Superior Court seeking his reinstatement. The court ordered Mr. Farahani reinstated with full back pay, seniority and benefits. San Diego Community College then appealed to the Fourth District Court of Appeals which upheld the Superior Court's decision. Mr. Farahani was reinstated to work with the San Diego Community College District with full back pay, seniority benefits and attorneys' fees.
