Lawsuit against Pacifica directors for financial malfeasance moves forward

A Superior Court judge in Los Angeles is allowing a lawsuit filed against two leaders of the Pacifica National Board by three people affiliated with the local and national boards of KPFA to go forward. The LA Superior Court judge ruled late last month that the legal action charging malfeasance, negligence and financial mismanagement by Grace Aaron and Alex Steinberg of the Pacifica Foundation national board of directors, can proceed after minor amendments to the complaint. The action has been brought by Andrea Turner, Christina Huggins and Donald Goldmacher, all current or former members of the national or local KPFA advisory board, who say the defendants have the put the radio network in serious financial jeopardy.
