San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera has reached a $400,000 settlement Wednesday with Lacayo & Associates, an immigration consulting business the city sued last year, claiming it was providing immigration-related legal services it was neither authorized nor qualified to perform. Calling the San Francisco business a “predatory” operation charging thousands of dollars for “incompetent or nonexistent” legal work, the city sued the firm’s owners, Leonard Lacayo, and his mother, Ada, August 2016 for allegedly defrauding clients by leading them to believe that Leonard was a licensed attorney and advertising legal services to the city’s immigrant community for decades.

In Oklahoma, Gov. Mary Fallin signed a bill to repeal the standards in 2014 less than six months after defending them in a speech. She said Common Core had become too divisive.
