Sahouri Wins Settlement Against Argentine Township, Police Officer

Former Creekside principal will receive $150,000 settlement.

Former Creekside principal Tracey Sahouri has reached a settlement agreement with her lawsuit filed in January against Argentine Township and Officer Arch Ravert of the Argentine Police Department, according to court records from the Genesee County Circuit Court.

The Press and Argus reports that Sahouri will receive a $150,000 settlement, which she calls a "vindication," according to the story.

In July, 2011, Sahouri and her husband were ticketed for knowingly hosting a graduation party with underage drinking. The charges were dismissed in December with Sahouri filing a lawsuit shortly after claiming the charges were detrimental to her career and reputation.

Sahouri also has a lawsuit against, route: {:controller=>"articles", :action=>"show", :id=>"tracey-sahour"} --> Hartland Consolidated Schools claiming they violated the Whistleblower Protection Act. In April, the Hartland school board voted

Good for her.

Good for her that they settled? LOL Many insurance carriers settle as it's cheaper than prolonging a case and going to court.

Uh, insurance carriers don't pay $150k for baseless claims... She obviously had a good case, or they certainly wouldn't have paid that amount to settle it.

Obviously you don't understand the cost of litigating a case.

Obviously you live in a fantasy world if you think meritless cases are settled for $150k. The insurance companies employ legions of lawyers. It costs them little to litigate. They chose not to BECAUSE THEY WOULD HAVE LOST.

Go Mrs. Sahouri. I love you to death and sassyme can go downstairs..if ya know what I'm sayin.

So if I was to knowingly throw a party with underage drinking I would be fined and possibly jailed. Why should she be different. Actually she should be held at a higher standard. I would not reinstate her vice principal position. She should be lucky to have a teacher position.She was wrong period. She was an ADMINISTRATOR.

Yes, but you're apparently not a loyal member of the Party.

Veronica stated what I was thinking. While I understand this settlement, if indeed she was harassed by the Police Officer as it sounds like she was, I do not understand how she got away with allowing underage drinking at her home. And, I really have a hard time with the $525K settlement offer from the school district for her other suit.

The prosecutor threw out the drinking case, because it was baseless. Sahouri won a 100k settlement against the police department. See, we have this innocent until proven guilty thing around here. Perhaps you've heard of it.

Some of us work for a living and to pay taxes, and some of us simply leech off the taxpayers. She's obviously in the latter category.
