A longtime employee of See's Candy Shops Inc. is suing the company, alleging that poor coronavirus protocol in the packaging warehouse in Carson caused her to contract the disease and later infect her husband and one of her daughters.
(Los Angeles, CA) — A longtime See’s employee is filing a negligence-wrongful death lawsuit against the San Francisco-based candy maker. Maria Saucillo of Upland claims poor COVID-19 protocols at See’s packaging warehouse in Carson caused her to contract the disease in 2020. The suit also says the plaintiff later infected her husband and one of her daughters. Gilbert Saucillo, Junior died from complications caused by the coronavirus at the age of 69. Saucillo’s daughter recovered from the disease. The lawsuit states See’s employees were forced to work in close proximity with other workers at the Alameda Street warehouse without proper personal protective equipment. It also claimed employees expressed concerns to management about the working conditions — but supervisors chose not to act on them. See’s officials have not commented on the lawsuit that was filed last week in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Donna and I were fortunate to be able to attend Friday’s hearing on the People’s Homeless Task Force vs the City of Anaheim, a suit that aims to overturn, on Brown Act grounds, Anaheim’s very unfavorable and suspicious sale of the Stadium and surrounding property. Many of our friends and co-petitioners tried to watch the proceedings on livestream, but the Court’s livestream is no longer working, so they’ve asked me to give a little report. I’ll ask our great attorney, the undefeated Brown Act fighter Kelly Aviles, to correct me if I get anything wrong, and I’ll fix it here quickly.
