Jin N. Lew, attorney with Michels & Lew, was interviewed by the Daily Journal in the article "LA school abuse claims erupt as court weighs liability." The article discussed the Miramonte Elementary school sex abuse scandal, explaining how a forthcoming California Supreme Court decision in the case of C.A. v. William S. Hart Union High School District could potentially shield the Los Angeles Unified School District from liability related to the recent sexual abuse case involving two Miramonte Elementary school teachers. In response to the school district launching their own internal investigation, and ordering the replacement of the entire staff at Miramonte Elementary, Mr. Lew stated, "They're doing this now, where they have complete control over the witnesses. We're concerned about undue influence, whether inadvertent or intentional."

The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the victims.
