Cambridge Day: City of Cambridge Pays $8.3 million to Monteiro

Cambridge Day reports that, by transmittal latter dated Friday, Cambridge satisfied its legal obligations to Malvina Monteiro. Payment was probably made by wire transfer.

As I reported yesterday, the final pretrial hearing on the last two plaintiffs in this originally 5 plaintiff case have been delayed yet another month, to October 11, at 2 pm in Middlesex Superior Court, room / session F.

Monteiro’s victory was based on retaliation. My apparently knowledgeable source on Monday described a continuing pattern of behavior. Whether the retaliation victory will translate into large payments to the last two plaintiffs rather than trial is yet to be seen. My understanding is that the first two plaintiffs got good payments.
