Add comment on:SaveKPFA members attempt to avoid liability for disloyalty denied by the Court of Appeal.
Richard Phelps, former Chair KPFA LSB
Daniel Siegel, Conn Hallinan, Margy Wilkinson and Mal Burnstein, elected members of Pacifica governance, all organized and supported a fund drive competing with KPFA's Winter 2010/2011 fund drive. All four were sued for breach of their duty of loyalty. They asked the trial court to dismiss the suit against them and the trial court said no. They appealed and the Court of Appeal affirmed the trial court denial. Siegel and Burnstein are lawyers and had to know that competing was illegal.
