City of Cupertino Agrees to Settlement with Former City Attorney Randolph Hom

Post Date:07/09/2019 10:54 am

CUPERTINO - The City of Cupertino and its former City Attorney Randolph Hom have reached a settlement of Hom’s retaliation, discrimination, and breach of contract claims.

After a confidential mediation with Judge James Kleinberg, a retired judge of the Santa Clara County Superior Court, the parties reached agreement on a total settlement payment of $205,000. The Cupertino City Council approved the settlement agreement at its public meeting on July 8, 2019.

“While the City denied liability for all claims, settling for $205,000 compared to the millions Mr. Hom originally claimed makes good sense because it avoids the costs of a potentially lengthy lawsuit,” said Heather Minner, who became City Attorney in February 2019.

“We need to move the City forward and this potential lawsuit was a distraction,” Mayor Steven Scharf said. “Agreeing to this settlement and putting this matter behind us is in the best interest of the City.”
