Late yesterday, a jury said the LAUSD will have to pay nearly $6.9 million to a 14-year-old boy who was molested by an teacher when he was in fifth-grade 

The decision comes as the district faces close to 200 pending molestation and lewd conduct claims arising from another teacher's alleged conduct at Miramonte Elementary School.

Howard Blume, who has been reporting on this for the L.A. Times, joins the show.
