San Mateo Union High School Dist. v. County of San Mateo (Cal. Ct. App. - Jan. 31, 2013)

When I first saw the caption of this opinion, I tried to guess what it might be about.  After all, it's pretty unusual for a school district to sue a county.

Litigation about class size?  Tax revenues?  Teacher contracts?  Playground equipment?

I spent ten seconds or so trying to guess.  I could have taken a year and would never even have come close.

It's about an investment in Lehman Brothers that went bad.

Ah, San Mateo.
