LOS ANGELES -- A former Los Angeles Unified School District facilities manager has sued retired Superintendent Ramon Cortines, accusing him of making unwanted sexual advances.
City News Services reports the lawsuit was filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court by Scot Graham.
The action comes two months after the district held a news conference to announce a $200,000 settlement with Graham to resolve his harassment complaint.
Graham had not signed off on the settlement. His lawyers say the matter was made public without his consent.
Cortines, who retired in 2011, could not immediately be reached for comment. He has said his interactions with Graham were consensual.
The suit says Cortines made advances to Graham in 2000 and later in 2010. Graham says he reported the harassment but was told to forget about it.
Cortines was superintendent of the San Jose Unified School District from 1984-86 and superintendent of the San Francisco Unified School District from 1986-1992.
