$4 M Judgment
Cerbone v. Diocese – Defamation/Whistleblower Retaliation

Following a two week trial in Sacramento County, a jury found the Diocese liable for retaliating and defaming the Plaintiff. Only four months into the job, head football coach Christopher Cerbone reported sexual hazing among student athletes at Saint-Patrick Saint-Vincent High School in Vallejo, California. The Diocese terminated his employment almost immediately after receiving his report, and publicly defamed him by reporting to over 20 media outlets that he was “ultimately responsible” for supervision during the time the hazing occurred. The jury awarded $900,000.00 in damages for emotional distress and harm to reputation and found the Diocese acted maliciously. After arguments concerning punitive damages, the Diocese stipulated to a $4 million judgment against it.
